SIL Mentors

Mentors are willing to offer advice to students and junior scientists seeking to publish their research findings, in some of the following ways:

  • Screening of data for its suitability for publication
  • Advice on a target journal
  • Help in preparing a paper together in a constructive and professional atmosphere
  • Provide follow-up after the review process
  • Advice on career planning
