During the TVX submission process, we can provide the opportunity to receive feedback and guidance from established researchers. Mentoring program is geared towards Full and Short Papers, and Work in Progress Papers, so that those who need additional support in their submission can be assisted.

In the mentorship program, we get you in contact with a specific member of the community who will provide feedback and support for your submission. Those receiving mentoring will be offered:

  • Two opportunities for feedback over Skype from their mentor
  • A commented draft at each of the two stages

Please note that this is primarily aimed at those who are submitting to TVX for the first time, those in circumstances which are particular adverse (e.g. a disability or personal circumstances which impact upon the paper preparation process), or a particularly novel submission which may require additional input. The aim is to ensure that excellent underlying work is given the best opportunity of being accepted.
