JCBS is excited to announce a new initiative to train student reviewers. This initiative is a joint effort between the ACBS Student SIG and JCBS. This program is a great opportunity for students interested in receiving training in and experience completing reviews of manuscripts submitted to JCBS. Students will complete a training webinar then be paired with a member of the editorial board. The student will then be allowed to participate in that board member's reviews.
