Learning from failures is a fundamental skill for success. But when we look at many of our luminaries we see only the accomplishments and none of the setbacks. An upcoming JACR special issue will dive into the many facets of failure and how to overcome it – and the journal wants to hear from you. When have you failed? How did the experience boost you up, either in the short term or long term? What can radiology as a specialty learn from failure?
Successful submissions will frame failure within one of the JACR’s pillars: leadership, practice management, training and education, data science, and health services research and policy. For example, practice management topics may include learning from failures related to a merger or business venture, in managing people, or in educational programs. Data science articles could cover failures related to reproducibility or unconscious bias.
