A couple of weeks ago, JIDC Editor-in-Chief Salvatore Rubino received a letter from a researcher in Cameroon. The letter from Jane-Francis Akoachere of the University of Buea in Cameroon, described how the JIDC Mentoring System supports researchers in non-English speaking countries to communicate the research from their communities on an international level.
When the letter was received, everyone at JIDC especially E-in-C Salvatore Rubino was incredibly moved as the Mentoring is the HEART of JIDC. The whole JIDC Editorial and Technical Staff wanted to show how important this letter was to us and say a big THANK YOU to Jane-Francis Akoachere. It means more than can be expressed to have a reader communicating their gratitude.
So… Thank You Jane-Francis Akoachere and Cameroon from everyone at JIDC!
Here is Dr. Jane-Francis Akoachere's Letter:
Dear Dr Salvatore Rubino,
I was browsing through Scopus and came across JIDC for the first time. Out of curiosity, I did a Google search and got a write up (PDF document) on the mission and vision of JIDC. I salute the concern you and your team has shown about scientists in developing countries and I earnestly thank you all for drawing up such a project. Personally, I think I will benefit from the JIDC project because being linked to a mentor, will enable me polish up my writing skills and come up with good manuscripts.
Kindly extend my warm greetings, appreciation and best wishes to your entire team.
