November 11, 2022 —  The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is proud to announce Dr. Sarah Kamel of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA as the 2023 Melvin M. Figley Fellow in Radiology Journalism and Dr. Ankur Goyal of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi as the 2023 Lee F. Rogers International Fellow in Radiology Journalism. 

Financed by The Roentgen Fund and named for two distinguished Editors Emeriti of ARRS’ own American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), the Melvin Figley and Lee Rogers Fellowships offer practicing radiologists an unparalleled 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—Drs. Kamel and Goyal 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.  

From April 16–20, 2023, Drs. Kamel and Goyal will attend the 2023 ARRS Annual Meeting in Honolulu, HI, where they will co-present the AJR Year in Review Sunday Session and participate in the Editor’s Forum.  

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. With a worldwide circulation of 25,000, last year, AJR dramatically increased its impact factor—rising from 3.959 to 6.582. Overall, “the yellow journal” garnered 42,199 citations in 2021, ranking AJR fourth among all radiology journals. 

Dr. Sarah Kamel is an assistant professor in the division of musculoskeletal radiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. Her clinical expertise is in MRI, CT, and ultrasound with an emphasis on CT and ultrasound-guided musculoskeletal intervention. Dr. Kamel’s research interest is in the economics of health care utilization, specifically the cost effectiveness of various imaging pathways in the evaluation of joint pain. Clinically, her research interests are in assessing patient outcomes following minimally invasive image-guided procedures.   

Dr. Ankur Goyal is an additional professor in the department of radiodiagnosis and interventional radiology at New Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences. His fields of interest include abdominal and musculoskeletal imaging and interventions for vascular anomalies. Author of some 100 publications and 27 book chapters, he has delivered more than 100 lectures on multiple research projects at conferences and workshops, including 75 oral paper and poster presentations. Recipient of the Cum Laude Award during the 2019 ARRS Annual Meeting in Hawaii, he has won RSNA Certificates of Merit in 2009 and 2018. Additionally, he received the 2017 Dr. VP Lakhanpal Gold Medal from the Indian Radiological & Imaging Association (IRIA), 2019 Onco-Imaging Award from the Indian College of Radiology & Imaging, as well as President Appreciation and Academic Excellence Awards from IRIA’s New Delhi branch. A prior fellow of the European Society of Urogenital Radiology, Dr. Goyal serves on the executive bodies of local radiology associations, including Delhi’s branch of the Indian Society of Vascular & Interventional Radiology. He also serves as a reviewer for 14 journals, including European Radiology, European Journal of Radiology, and Abdominal Radiology. 

Dr. Melvin M. Figley (1920–2010) assumed the editorial mantle of AJR with the January 1976 issue. Hiring a full-time professional staff and, for the first time, a managing editor, he appointed associate editors for his now mandatory peer review process. Publication accelerated, and the quality of illustrations improved, leading to the introduction of the AJR Pictorial Essay. Dr. Figley was also critical to the partnership between ARRS and the American Society of Neuroradiology, leading to the founding of the American Journal of Neuroradiology in 1980. After more than a decad of dedicated service to “the yellow journal,” Dr. Figley retired in 1985, having just launched AJR’s very first electronic edition, eAJR. 

Dr. Lee F. Rogers, the distinguished musculoskeletal radiologist and longtime chair of imaging at Northwestern University Medical School, was named AJR’s chief editorial officer in 1996. Having served as president for every radiological organization of note, highlights from Rogers’ tenure at the journal include more contemporary design, his charming messages penned to readers every month, as well as the introduction of two new article types: a medicolegal column, authored by Dr. Leonard Berlin, and an editor's notebook, giving authors an opportunity to expound upon their research. Both the quality and the variety of papers published in AJR remained quite high, as the information revolution propelled “the yellow journal” into new formats, such as CD-ROM, and frontiers, like the internet. 

A call for applications for the 2024 ARRS Figley and Rogers Fellowships will be announced later this year.
