Tissue Engineering Parts A, B, & C: Young Investigator Council
Beginning in 2012, the Editors-in-Chief of Tissue Engineering, Parts A, B, & C invite young investigators and researchers in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to apply to join the distinguished Tissue Engineering Editorial Board. This new initiative will allow young investigators to work closely with other members of the board, establish solid relationships with experts in the field, and gain insight and important experience in the manuscript peer-review process.
Of the pool of applicants, six students will be selected every year to join the editorial board. The term for each young investigator will last up to one year. Upon acceptance, each student will be assigned 5-6 papers for peer review. After completing the review of each paper, they will be given specific feedback from select editorial board members on their reviewing skills, as well as feedback on how they can improve these skills. This interaction between student and board member aims to establish a strong mentor-mentee relationship while building robust manuscript writing and reviewing abilities.
Along with building peer-review skills, the young investigator council will be asked to meet and suggest a special issue topic that they and their peers would find useful. This topic will be reviewed by the Editors-in-Chief of the journal and slated for publication in the Journal. All young investigators will be invited to attend the annual conferences of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) and will coordinate closely with the Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS) of the society.
This initiative is brought forth to further the professional and scientific development of students in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Please see application below for additional details.
