Call for ISSBD Mentors

The ISSBD Mentor Program is a service to provide an early-career scholar with informal mentoring by a mid-career or senior ISSBD scholar.

Successful mentoring is greatly valued by ISSBD as it supports early-career ISSBD scholars and enhances the reputation of ISSBD and the mentor within ISSBD. Mentoring relations can develop into cross-national collaborations and friendships.
