Dear Colleagues,   

Ran across this FREE excellent academic platform called figbox I would like to share with everyone. Click here: https://figbox.co/

According to their FAQs  fIgbox allow early career researchers and junior scholars the ability support each other through the exchange of feedback, academic content, etc in the following categories: 

  • Securing scholarship/grant
  • Thesis selection/ literature review
  • Submission/publication advice
  • Methodological approach and design
  • Feedback on working paper
  • Feedback on working thesis
  • Replying to referee reviews from journal
  • Handling academic conflicts
  • Transitioning from academia into workplace
In exchange early career researchers:
  • Increase their mentorship/ peer-review experience
  • Receive verified mentorship certificates in support of CV and career
  • Get mentorship advice (e.g. grant proposal) from other early career researchers. 
  • Receive optional lunch money from mentees they support 
Best Regards, 
Casey, M
