The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) has named Samuel Galgano, MD, as the 2022 Melvin M. Figley Fellow in Radiology Journalism and Pankaj Gupta, MD, as the 2022 Lee F. Rogers International Fellow in Radiology Journalism.
Financed by The Roentgen Fund and named for two Editors Emeriti of ARRS’ own American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), the Figley and Rogers Fellowships offer practicing radiologists an opportunity to learn the tenets of medical publishing via “the yellow journal”—the world’s longest continuously published radiology journal.
Through hands-on experience with ARRS staff and AJR personnel—as well as personal apprenticeship with AJR’s 13th Editor of Chief, Andrew B. Rosenkrantz—Galgano and Gupta will receive expert instruction in scientific writing and communication, manuscript preparation and editing, peer review processes, journalism ethics, and both print production and digital publication. Founded in 1907, AJR is one of the specialty’s leading peer-reviewed journals, publishing clinically oriented content across all imaging subspecialties and modalities relevant to radiologists’ daily practice..
From May 1-5, Galgano and Gupta will attend the 2022 ARRS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, where they will co-present the AJR Year in Review Sunday Session and participate in the Editor’s Forum.
