City & Community’s Urban Scholars Development Program
City & Community’s Urban Scholars Development Program has been running smoothly and we have room for more participants. The program is aimed at providing one-on-one mentorship for early-career urban scholars (graduate students, post-docs, recent graduates) to aid them in their scholarship. In doing so we are developing the next generation of urban researchers and expanding the urban literature.
Potential mentees may email the journal directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be considered for the program or may be offered the opportunity to participate by the Editor-in-Chief or a Deputy Editor upon submission to the journal. Mentees will get assigned a faculty mentor from the editorial board to help them with their work. Mentors will help shape the mentees’ work into a publishable manuscript and work with them at least until the first successful submission to a peer-reviewed journal.
Scholars from underrepresented backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
– Must have no prior sole-authored academic publications
– Must have an article-length manuscript
While the expectation is authors will submit their finished work to City & Community upon completing mentorship, they are not required to do so. (Note: going through the program is not a substitute for peer review.)
