    Fungal Diversity especially encourages young researchers to join our recently established Reviewer Panel.

    In addition to the standard database of reviewers, Fungal Diversity has a Reviewer Panel made up of researchers in mycology, who are at an early stage of their career and wish to gain experience in reviewing.

    Editors of the journal will match each reviewer’s chosen areas of expertise to the respective manuscript. Members of the Reviewer Panel are asked to prioritize invitations to review for Fungal Diversity.
