Become a Doctoral Affiliate with IJRD!

We are accepting data sharing applications from students currently enrolled in an advanced graduate program (i.e., PhD, JD, or MD). The purpose of data sharing is to expand the reach of ongoing and completed research projects conducted by the faculty and staff at IJRD and to create an opportunity for doctoral students to receive mentorship in preparing academic journal articles for publication.

Doctoral Affiliates serve as the Principal Investigator and lead author on a manuscript submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed academic journal. IJRD data may also be used to support white papers, technical reports, and conference presentations in addition to academic publications. Affiliates may use also use IJRD data to fulfill requirements for a degree program (i.e., Dissertation or Thesis), although publication of academic publications is also expected.

                      You can access the full Data Sharing Agreement Application here
