JACR seeking new editor-in-chief

The American College of Radiology (ACR) announced Thursday it was seeking a new editor-in-chief for its journal, the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR).

The new editor will serve for five years, beginning in January 2019. There will be a six-month transition period that begins in 2018. Bruce J. Hillman, MD, is the current JACR editor and was also its founding editor.

“The new editor-in-chief will manage peer review of all articles submitted, maintain its editorial board, and set an editorial vision that fosters growth in quality submissions and readership,” a statement from the ACR read. “Also, the new editor will maintain review time and acceptance rates to minimize time to publication, implement and apply editorial policies and provide a high level of quality in the editing process.”

The ACR is taking applications until Dec. 31. More information, including where to send those applications, is available on the college’s website.
