JSCAI Editorial Fellowship Program | SCAI

Program Overview

The JSCAI Editorial Fellowship Program aims to increase involvement in and commitment to the journal peer-review process among early-career researchers by providing fellows-in-training and early-career interventionalists with an opportunity to enhance their peer-review skills.

Paired with an editor specific to their area of interest, JSCAI Editorial Fellows work with JSCAI Editors who have extensive editorial and publishing experience, are introduced to JSCAI editorial procedures, and receive training on the peer review system. 

During the program, JSCAI Editorial Fellows review up to 12 manuscripts over the two-year term and attend JSCAI Editorial Board calls, as required, to discuss their reviewed manuscripts. In addition, they present reports on what they have learned and how they anticipate this will support their career progression at the program's conclusion and are recognized as JSCAI Editorial Fellows at SCAI Scientific Sessions and SCAI Fellows Courses.
