ALPSP Mentorship Scheme open for applications

    The Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers (ALPSP) is delighted to announce the launch of its next Mentorship Scheme. Applications are now open and will close on 23 December.

    Aimed at connecting colleagues across our network and to create a collaborative conversation between participants which benefits all who are involved, this scheme is free for all mentees within ALPSP membership organizations, and mentors are encouraged from both member and non-member organizations.

    First introduced in January 2021, the ALPSP Mentorship Scheme has grown from strength to strength. ALPSP has recently invested in new software which will offer a more streamlined service, including extensive online training resources for mentors and mentees. It also includes a self-match function, which allows mentees to approach preferred mentors. 

    ALPSP member and mentor, Hannah BaldwinRSC, commented:

    Working with my mentee has been a really engaging, fruitful two-way process and I think we have taught each other a lot: not only has being a mentor given me a fresh perspective on using my knowledge and experience, but I have also learned new approaches and embraced the opportunity to challenge myself and to grow my own skillset.”

    We are grateful to Publishers’ Licensing Services for its continued support for this valuable membership benefit.
