We are delighted to announce a new mentoring programme for Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine, starting in autumn 2017.

The editors of Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine will consider applicants to work on developing a manuscript based on original research for publication in the journal.

After the mentoring period (usually around 6 months), the manuscript will be subject to the regular peer-review process. The scheme will operate on a competitive basis.

Selection process: the successful applicants will be selected by the Editor-in-Chief based on the quality and originality of the proposed article, the quality of the writing sample and the suitability of the topic for publication in Journal of Visual Communication in Medicine.

Note: applicants should familiarise themselves with the journal’s Aims and Scope.
