Early Career Researcher (ECR) Grant Program

We are pleased to announce the initiation of our Early Career Researcher Grant Program aimed at fostering international collaboration, information sharing, and professional development. This program offers an exciting opportunity for early career researchers to collaborate with international counterparts, attend conferences to learn from colleagues, present their research to international audiences, and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their respective fields.

The Early Career Research Grant Program supports knowledge acquisition and sharing that will contribute to understanding and preventing targeted violence and terrorism. The program seeks to support a broad range of academic interests within the study of targeted violence and terrorism prevention. The grant awards are focused on supporting professional development activities that help ECRs network with peers and more senior scholars.

  • Applications will be accepted beginning May 6, 2024 and will be considered in the order in which they are received.
  • Awards will be announced on a rolling basis starting no later than June 2024.

About the Program

The International Academic Partnerships for Science and Security (IAPSS) consortium is a global knowledge exchange hub that brings together academics, government, and industry to advance the field of targeted violence and terrorism prevention.

IAPSS is a collaborative effort led by the Centre for Research and Evidence in Security Threats (CREST) and the National Counterterrorism Innovation, Technology, and Education Center (NCITE), the United States Department of Homeland Security academic Center of Excellence for the study of terrorism prevention and counterterrorism research. IAPSS offers a platform to deepen knowledge exchange between countries and develop the next generation of thought leaders. 

Through these endeavors, IAPSS aims to:

  1. Network: Foster stronger relationships among academic centers that attended the IAPSS inaugural meeting held in March 2024.
  2. Innovate: Facilitate the exchange of knowledge and methodological expertise across international collaborators, multilateral groups, and the wider public.
  3. Secure: Contribute to the development of the next generation of social and behavioral scientists studying security and prevention.


The IAPSS ECR grant program offers awards up to $5,000 (USD) to applicants who demonstrate a commitment to advancing knowledge related to the prevention of targeted violence and terrorism. Six (6) awards will be allocated during the first year of the initiative, and the funds can be used to support various aspects of the professional development process, including but not limited to:

  • Developing an ECR-led network that informs the broader IAPSS consortium
  • Travel expenses for conference attendance
  • Publication fees
  • Professional development opportunities such as training workshops

Become a Campbell Peer Referee

Become a Campbell Peer Referee

Are you interested in becoming a peer referee for the Campbell Collaboration? Campbell wants to grow its referee pool to provide quality feedback to authors and reduce turnaround time.

Referees are subject matter experts in any of the topics covered by Campbell. Your help is needed to give feedback to authors on proposed systematic reviews, evidence gap maps, and scoping reviews.

You are a subject matter expert:  if you have substantive experience (e.g. over 3 years experience) in research or policy in any of the domains of Campbell Library which include: Ageing, Business & Management, Children & Young Persons Wellbeing, Climate Solutions, Crime & Justice, Disability, Education, International Development,  Knowledge Translation & Implementation, Methods and Social Welfare.

Peer referees are asked to declare conflicts of interest as per our policy. Peer referees should be independent from the author team, i.e. not have published with any of the authors in the last 5 years. 

We make it easy to review.  Campbell will provide you with referee criteria in an easy-to-use format that parallels the article, making it easy for you to apply your expertise to assess strengths and limitations to help authors produce high quality review products. 

No more than three reviews a year. For a small amount of work, you will contribute substantially to building Campbell capacity and turnaround.

Recognition: We will list you as a member of our Editorial Advisory Board on our journal website (unless you opt out).

Compensation: We are able to provide a honouraria of $750 USD per referee assessment for funded reviews

Duration: We ask for a commitment of 2 years, though recognize that your circumstances may change and ask you to let us know if you would like step down.
