Albert L. Baert Editorial Fellowship

The Albert L. Baert Fellowship is an editorial fellowship programme carried out by the Editor in Chief of European Radiology, Prof. Yves Menu, and sponsored by the European Radiology Private Foundation. 

It aims to provide training in editorial skills, such as manuscript evaluation, manuscript editing, organisation of peer review, manuscript production and publishing, including electronic publication


The fellowship will consist of a brief onsite introductory training at the office of the Editor-in-Chief in Paris/FR (subject to COVID restrictions), and a remote training programme. During the onsite stay the fellow will receive a basic personal training and gain insight into the work of the Editor-in-Chief in the following areas:

  • Handling new manuscripts
  • Handling revised/resubmitted manuscripts
  • Inviting reviewers for a first review
  • Making the first decision
  • Making final acceptance decisions
  • Reviewing

Upon completion of the onsite training, the selected fellow will continue working remotely on his/her manuscripts, thereby being involved in all stages of a manuscript’s lifetime. At the end of the fellowship period, the candidate will remain as a reviewer for the journal. 

The selected fellow will be awarded €4,500 to cover expenses and will receive free registration to the European Congress of Radiology and an invitation to join the ESR Journals Editorial Board Meeting.

The application period for the 2023 Albert L. Baert Fellowship will open in Autumn 2022. 

Review Fellowships

The European Society of Radiology annually hosts the European Radiology Review Fellowships.

Every year, up to 10 candidates are trained as reviewers for our flagship journal European Radiology for a period of approximately 6 months (March to September).


The fellowship consist of an initial training session (to be held online). This workshop is led by the Editor-in-Chief of European Radiology, Prof. Yves Menu.

Over the duration of the fellowship, the fellows perform reviews of manuscripts, in addition to the reviews carried out by senior reviewers, and have their work revised and analysed by a supervising Editor.



The fellows become familiar with manuscript handling, methods for analysing scientific papers and criteria for editorial decisions (accept, revise, reject, decline).
At the end of the fellowship period, the fellows receive a certificate and might remain as permanent reviewers for the journal.

The selected fellows also receive free registration to the European Congress of Radiology. 

The application period for the 2023 European Radiology Review Fellowships will open in Autumn 2022.
