Mentors play a crucial role in determining project topics, delegating tasks to mentees, resolving queries, and outlining the journal selection and article submission process.

If you want to get involved in ongoing research projects, the first step is to complete the Level 1 course available on the SoMR website. After grasping the fundamentals of research, you’ll be eligible to join our Mentorship Program, where mentors will guide you in applying your newfound knowledge to publish a research project.

For those looking to start their research journey, we recommend starting with SoMR’s Level 1 course. This course covers the basics of research, including different research types, research ethics and methodologies, literature search, referencing, abstract writing, LTEs, and case reports.

SoMR regularly uploads the Level 1 and Level 2 courses, and you can be updated about them through our social media accounts.

Yes. It is suggested that the Level 1 course be completed before Level 2. This is because Level 1 introduces basic ideas of research and frequently used associated terminologies. Level 2 then builds upon this foundation, introducing the higher tiers of research. Therefore, it only makes sense to complete Level 1 before progressing to Level 2.
