RadioGraphics Seeks New Editor
Released: January 28, 2019
OAK BROOK, Ill. (Jan. 28, 2019) — Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) is accepting applications for the position of RadioGraphics editor, which has been held by Jeffrey S. Klein, M.D., since 2012.
Dr. Klein, RSNA board liaison for publications and communications, will step down as RadioGraphics editor at the end of 2020.
Launched by RSNA in 1981, RadioGraphics is one of the leading education journals in diagnostic radiology. Each bimonthly issue features 15 to 20 practice-focused articles spanning the full spectrum of radiologic subspecialties and addressing topics such as diagnostic imaging techniques, imaging features of a disease or group of diseases, radiologic-pathologic correlation, practice policy and quality initiatives, imaging physics, informatics and lifelong learning.
A special issue, a monograph focused on a single subspecialty or on a crossover topic of interest to multiple subspecialties, is published each October.
"Dr. Klein will be stepping down from his position as editor. However, his legacy will live on," said RSNA President Valerie P. Jackson, M.D. "In launching a search to identify Dr. Klein's successor, RSNA will look to build on his many accomplishments."
The RadioGraphics editor is responsible for:
- Developing the overall educational mission and editorial policies for the journal.
- Soliciting high-quality educational manuscripts.
- Developing policies and processes for and conducting peer review.
- Releasing manuscripts on a timely basis for publication.
- Cooperating with the RSNA Board of Directors and staff in maintaining fiscal responsibility.
RSNA plans to select the new RadioGraphics editor in September 2019. That person will become the editor-designate in July 1, 2020, and editor in January 2021.
The editor is expected to spend 60 percent of his or her time on RadioGraphics. The full job description can be found at RSNA.org/RadioGraphics.
A search committee chaired by Matthew A. Mauro, M.D., RSNA board liaison for education, is assisting the board of directors in its search. Interested physicians are invited to email their curricula vitae, cover letters and vision statements to Dr. Mauro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
