Abstract: The evaluation found a lack of communication between mentors and Principal Investigators (PIs) from the very early stages of the relationship, where ideally they should have first met and discussed their backgrounds, interests, motivations, expectations, and practical issues such as time commitment and scheduling. In addition to providing a deliberate space for clarification and preliminary conversation to occur, SIRCA can develop sharper definitions of the roles and duties of the Mentor and PI in the agreement Terms of Reference and the Memorandum of Understanding. Co-authorship should not be mandated but is a desirable outcome.
