Vienna, March 20, 2017 (ESR) – The European Society of Radiology (ESR) is pleased to announce that Prof. Luis Martí-Bonmatí has been appointed as the new Editor-in-Chief of Insights into Imaging as of January 2018. He will take over from Prof. Robert Hermans, who has served as the Editor-in-Chief since 2010.
Under Hermans’ guidance, the journal saw a successful launch in 2010 and a transition into a fully open access journal as of 2012. An increasing number of full text downloads over the past years, reaching a high of more than 300,000 article downloads in 2016, proves that the journal is appreciated by a growing number of readers all over the world. Insights into Imaging has also been submitted to the Institute of Scientific Information (ISI) to receive an Impact Factor, and is currently under evaluation.
Martí-Bonmatí is director of the Medical Imaging Department at La Fe University and Polytechnic University Hospital, and chief of radiology at Quirónsalud Hospital, Valencia, Spain. He is a long-time member of the European Society of Radiology and has served as chairperson of the ESR Research Committee from 2010–2013. “I look forward to this new challenge, and hope that I can develop the scientific influence of Insights into Imaging to engage our audience even further,” stated Martí-Bonmatí.
In related news, as of October 2017, Prof. Maximilian F. Reiser will step down from his position as Editor-in-Chief of European Radiology. The ESR Board of Directors now wishes to identify his successor during 2017 so that there can be a gradual handover of responsibilities during the latter part of this year.
The post (three years initially) is open to established radiologists who are or recently have been practising radiology at staff/consultant level in a renowned institution. They should have a demonstrably strong record in scientific publishing and experience of editorial work of at least Editorial Board level in an internationally respected radiological journal.
The ESR is looking for an individual with a wide knowledge of most branches of radiology, an international reputation as a research radiologist and an understanding of how radiological practice varies from country to country.
