  • Giuseppe Guglielmi, MD: 2003 Eyler Editorial Fellow

  • The RSNA Editorial Fellowship experience, from both a personal and a working point of view, was excellent. The fellows receive a complete and exhaustive overview of all the processes pertaining to medical scientific publication.

    All details are covered, including editorial processes, revision of a manuscript, blinded process of manuscript reviewing, manuscript editing, figures, design, layout of the journal, advertisement, online journals, and communication. All this information is disseminated during the month of fellowship at the Radiology and the RadioGraphics editorial offices and at RSNA headquarters. In particular, Dr Proto and Dr Olmsted — with their charisma and enthusiasm — positively influence the fellow, who is very busy in the daily editorial work. In fact, the opportunity to be actively involved in each Editor's working day was very important to me; I was able to take an active part in the editorial process and not be just a passive spectator.

    Another important aspect of the RSNA editorial fellowship is that the fellow can then be an educator among academic institutions and educational programs. He or she can pass along the knowledge related to the art of medical writing to other, young colleagues interested in the editorial process. I think that RSNA should encourage all the editorial fellows to transmit the knowledge they gained to other radiologists in their own country.
