Young Reviewers Program

The Young Reviewers Program (YRP) aims to introduce IEEE RAS students to sound practices in peer reviewing of scientific papers. To achieve this objective, student YRP members will be supervised by senior reviewers (SRs) in regular RAS review procedures. In addition to benefitting from a mentor–mentee relationship, YRP members will have the opportunity to attend webinars and online tutorials to further explore and improve their writing and reviewing skills. Once a certain level of expertise is demonstrated, students will graduate with an overall qualification grade. The YRP will be introduced during the IROS 2016 review period. Details of the YRP and membership applications are available here.
