Participate in the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program — apply by August 20

Posted by on Aug 18, 2021 in Graduate Students, Opportunities |

The Journal of Engineering Education (JEE) is committed to cultivate, disseminate, and archive scholarly research in engineering education.  To expand their reviewer base and maintain the quality of manuscript reviews, JEE launched a Mentored Reviewer Program in 2019. This program is intended to coach new or novice reviewers through the review process with a mentor who has substantial experience in reviewing and writing engineering education research studies.

JEE is inviting applications for mentees to the JEE Mentored Reviewer Program. Mentees for the program should be novices in engineering education research such as graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and engineering faculty.  Mentees should display evidence of developing expertise (through formal courses or real-world experiences) in research areas that align with the journal’s mission. Mentees should have developing expertise in either quantitative or qualitative research methods. Individuals from countries other than the United States are welcome and encouraged to apply.

The Mentored Reviewer Program is a competitive program for both mentors and mentees. All mentors and mentees will be acknowledged at the ASEE annual meeting and will receive a certificate recognizing their accomplishments through their participation in the program during the previous year. Mentees will be asked to participate in an online training with their mentors and JEE editors that will include an introduction to JEE and an overview of expectations for reviews. During the mentorship period (approximately three to six months), mentors and mentees will work together on approximately three article reviews. A scaffolded approach to the review process allows each mentee to gain more independence by their final review. To the extent possible, mentors and mentees will be matched based on expertise.

Mentees should apply by Friday, August 20, 2021.

For more information on the program, please contact Lisa Benson at, or visit the program website, which also includes resources for reviewers.
