AJNR Editorial Fellowship


ASNR and AJNR are pleased to join efforts with other imaging-related journals that have training programs on editorial aspects of publishing
for trainees or junior staff (3­–5 years after training) such as Radiology (Olmsted fellowship), AJR (Figley and Rogers fellowships [USA and international respectively]), and Radiologia (from Spain).


  1. Increase interest in “editorial” and publication-related activities in younger individuals.

  2. Increase understanding and participation in the AJNR review process.

  3. Incorporate into AJNR’s Editorial Board younger individuals who have previous experience in the review and publication process.

  4. Fill a specific need in neuroradiology not offered by other similar fellowships.

  5. Increase the relationship between “newer” generations of neuroradiologists and more established individuals.

  6. Increase visibility of AJNR among younger neuroradiologists.

Activities of the “Fellowship”:
