Benefits of being a mentor

  • Inspire the New Generation of Junior Scholars: You will be supporting junior scholars from around the world, who currently need additional mentorship support, including from those in parts of the world where academic resources are significantly limited.
  • Gain Referee Style Review Experience: You will be given the opportunity to improve your critical thinking and writing skills and give referee style reviews via figbox’s "double-blind review mentorship option", a skill that is required when you are asked by an elite journal to review an academic paper.
  • Advance your Academic Career: You are provided verified mentorship certificates based on how many papers you have reviewed and how many Junior Scholars (mentees) you are actively supporting on figbox. This verified certificate goes on your CV and can potentially boost your academic career.
