Ch- Ch- Changes

By Schwartz ES

This issue marks the end of an era for Applied Radiology. After over 13 years with Anderson Publishing and serving as our Executive Editor since 2014, Joseph Jalkiewicz will be focusing on other adventures. JJ, as he is known in our shorthand, has been a terrific partner to us all. He has been the grease that helps keep the wheels turning, keeping track of our review articles and columns, and cracking the whip with authors when needed. Like my editorials that — without fail — come in precariously close to our publication deadline.

His eye for detail and love of all things AMA Manual of Style have given our journal a consistent format and readability.

Larry Tanenbaum, our Associate Editor for AI, “always appreciated working with Joe and the unique tone he brought to my pieces.” And the incomparable Wet Reader himself, Doug Phillips, said, “I have beforehand refused any editorial input on my ramblings. His were (largely) appreciated.”

On a personal note, Joe has made me a better writer and editor. And his sense of humor made every interaction a pleasure. For those, and for his friendship, I am truly grateful.

Thank you, JJ. We will miss you and wish you all the best in your next chapter.
