Getting a Mentor: Papers & Works-In-Progress

During the IMX 2022 submission process, we will provide authors with the opportunity to receive feedback and guidance from mentors, who are established researchers in the area. Mentors will advise on how to structure papers, give editorial tips, and proofread submissions. They will not, however, offer opinions on methodology or the ideas being presented. 

This year’s Mentoring program is specifically geared towards  the Papers track and the Work-in-Progress track with the goal of helping researchers who need additional support with their submission.  Please note that this program primarily targets individuals who are: 

  • Non-native English speakers; OR
  • New to submitting an academic paper; OR
  • Facing adverse circumstances (e.g., a disability or personal circumstances which impact upon the paper preparation process); OR 
  • Seeking additional input for a particularly novel submission.

We will  match you with an experienced researcher who can provide feedback and support on the presentation of your submission. More specifically, those receiving mentoring will be offered:

  • An opportunity for feedback over a video call with their mentor.
  • A commented draft per each feedback session.
