Author:Dr. Candice Feiring

Subject:Call for Applications due 11-15-13: Child Maltreatment Journal Student Editorial Board

Child Maltreatment (CM) is seeking outstanding graduate students, interns, or postdoctoral fellows to serve as members of the Student Section of reviewers, under the guidance of expert mentors. The Student Section provides students an opportunity to gain experience in the scientific peer review and publication processes. Student Section members provide anonymous manuscript reviews under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Once the student review is approved by the faculty mentor, it is included in the journal’s decision and feedback process and forwarded to authors. As with all CM reviewers, students then receive anonymous copies of all other reviews of the manuscript so that they may compare their analysis and comments with those of recognized experts in the field. Student Section members are encouraged to attend and participate in editorial board meetings and discussions but do not serve as board members. They are expected to complete up to four reviews a year. A total of six students will be selected to serve 2-year terms from January 1, 2014, through December 31,2015. Applications are encouraged from students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows of diverse backgrounds and professional disciplines, including psychology, social work, medicine, law, criminal justice, and other areas related to child maltreatment. At the beginning of their term as reviewers, studentsmust have at least 2 years remaining under the supervision of their faculty mentors in their graduate or fellowship programs. Applicants are asked to submit, online (childmaltreatment@tcnj.edu), a single PDF document that includes the applicant’s CV, statement of interest, and faculty mentor’s letter of support. The student statement should describe professional areas of interest and goals for a 2-year term as student reviewer with CM (no more than 2 pages, double spaced, 12-point font). The faculty mentor’s letter should indicate the qualifications of the student applicant and the willingness to supervise up to four reviews a year. Application materials are due on November 15, 2013. We anticipate announcement of student selection will be made in by the end of December 2013.
