“Our mission as an organization extends beyond publications to elevating early career work in science policy across a number of platforms,” says Adriana Bankston, JSPG’s CEO. “I’m excited to offer additional opportunities for trainees to engage with JSPG and to promote published work through our new Ambassador Program.”
During their ambassadorship, trainees will gain knowledge of science policy topics and understanding of journal operations, learn skill sets applicable to a variety of science policy careers, obtain exposure to working in teams and interact with science policy professionals, and work with JSPG leadership on projects to advance the journal's mission.
