eLife is pleased to announce that it is supporting PREreview to pilot an interactive peer review mentoring program that empowers early-career researchers to contribute to scholarly review.


PREreview Open Reviewers is designed by the team behind PREreview.org, a platform for the crowdsourcing of preprint reviews, to support early-career researchers to build their profile as socially conscious, constructive peer reviewers. To bring focus on barriers in scientific participation, the program will facilitate discussions with both mentors and mentees about how intersecting systems of oppression, such as racism, sexism and colonialism, manifest within the global scientific enterprise. Mentees will be guided by their mentors in writing and posting preprint reviews that will be published with a digital object identifier. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to network with peers from across the world, and with journal editors and more senior researchers in their field.
