The Lunch of a New Educational Program (A Practical APJCP Editorial Fellowship)

The APJCP Editorial Fellowship is designed to introduce junior faculty members, residents, and fellows in different specialties of oncology to the peer review, editing, and publishing of research manuscripts in APJCP. This fellowship will also empower participants to disseminate meaningful information from published articles to scientific communities and the general population through social media. Fellows will get firsthand experience in handling a manuscript from the submission to the final publication. This allows learning to critically review the manuscript under the mentorship of handling editors. This one-year-long program will be in virtual mode and few of the participants will be allowed to continue assisting the journal editorial process and undertake editorial responsibility for APOCP’ journals.

 The fellowship will begin in May 2024. Fellows will be paired with a mentor who has substantial experience and expertise in the editorial process and publishing with peer-reviewed, high-impact journals. They will be expected to attend monthly journal calls, along with assisting the whole review process to make a final decision.
