The goal of the JAFSCD Author Mentor Program is to provide less experienced and limited resource researchers or professionals with no-cost, short-term technical assistance in preparing a submission to the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (JAFSCD). This might be a research paper (peer-reviewed) or a commentary, viewpoint, or reflective essay (not peer-reviewed). The assistance may include:
- General advice in focusing the topic
- Modest editorial help— sentence clarity and logic
- Assistance in submitting the draft to JAFSCD
CAREFULLY NOTE: Before completing this survey, be sure you have exhausted all other sources of support -- experienced authors you may know, a professor, a writing workshop at your institution, etc.
