Special Issue Call for Papers
Effective Mentoring of Biophysicists
The Biophysicist invites articles documenting effective practices for the mentoring of early career scientists and trainees at all levels. Submissions can be structured as Articles or Reports and may, respectively, be part of formal curricular elements in a program or center or may be about informal practices used by individuals who advise early career scientists or trainees. Articles should provide more than anecdotal evidence of the impact of these practices by including appropriate formative and/or summative assessments documenting developmental growth that is the result of their mentoring activities. In addition, we invite students and trainees to describe unique aspects of their mentoring experiences (as both mentees and as near-peer mentors of more junior students), in short contributions to our Student Forum.
Deadline for submissions: January 31, 2024

The Biophysicist aims to highlight and nurture education, and its scholarship and development. The journal serves a worldwide audience to make fundamental concepts and techniques in biophysics (and related disciplines), as well as evidence-based pedagogical practice, accessible to individuals at all levels: undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students/trainees; active researchers; and scholars of biophysics teaching and learning.
