Who can become ad-hoc reviewer:Anyone can become an ad-hoc reviewer, as long as they can co-review with their supervisor. If your supervisor is not currently a reviewer for the IJFMH, please have your supervisor fill out this form. We require students to be supported in their peer-review by their supervisors (PhD-level). We will accept MA-level student reviewers if they can demonstrate their proficiency with the academic peer review process. Undergraduate students will always serve as an adjuvant-ad-hoc reviewer to their supervisors.
Know before you go:The IJFMH adheres to the manuscript preparation, referencing style and layout of the 6th edition of the American Psychological Association's Publication Manual. This is a great tool to have handy when serving as a reviewer for the IJFMH.
Please note that in-depth (native language or native level proficiency) knowledge of the English language and English professional jargon is required to become an ad-hoc reviewer. At minimum, an applicant must be able to use:- and understand a variety of complex sentences in oral discourse.- and understand written English at grade level with instructional support.- some specialized and technical vocabulary.
