ANNOUNCEMENT – Albert L. Baert Editorial Fellowship – Application now CLOSED

The European Radiology Private Foundation announces the

Albert L. Baert Editorial Fellowship in 2020

This editorial fellowship programme is carried out by the Editor in Chief of European Radiology, Prof. Yves Menu, and aims to provide training in editorial skills, such as manuscript evaluation, manuscript editing, organisation of peer review, manuscript production and publishing, including electronic publication.

The fellowship will be divided in two parts consisting of an onsite and a remote training programme of the selected candidate.

Firstly, the fellow will spend one week at the office of the Editor-in-Chief in Paris/FR. This week includes five full days and evenings of homework which will be followed up during the next working day. During this stay the fellow will receive a personal training and gain insight into the work of the Editor-in-Chief in the following areas:

  • Handling new manuscripts
  • Handling revised/resubmitted manuscripts
  • Inviting reviewers for a first review
  • Making the first decision
  • Making final acceptance decisions
  • Reviewing

Upon completion of the onsite training, the fellow will continue working remotely on his/her manuscripts, thereby being involved in all stages of a manuscript’s lifetime. At the end of the fellowship period, the candidate will remain as a reviewer for the journal.

The selected fellow will be awarded €4,500 to cover expenses and free registration to ECR 2020, where he/she will be introduced at the journal’s editorial board meeting.
