Getting started for subeditors
This article is aimed new subeditors to assist them in getting started.
The role of subeditors is familiarising themselves with the style guide, contribute new content, and work on special projects. Everybody has different amount of time they can volunteer on Radiopaedia.org but as a rule of thumb at least a weekly contribution is expected.
From time-to-time the managing editors will run special projects aimed at improving the quality of articles or creating content in a specific area. You will be invited to participate in these and it is expected that subeditors preference working on special projects over general editorial reviewing. Examples of past and current special projects include:
- top 500 article review
- review of style guide violations (1800+ articles)
- FRANZCR part one anatomy articles
- basic radiology articles for medical students
- Radiographics update inititiative
There are number of ways to get started as a new subeditor:
- search for the tag "rewrite" and pick an article that requires updating for content and/or style guide errors
- don't forget to remove the rewrite tag when you're done
- write a new article
- finding new topics to write on is easy, just navigate to the "Related articles" section and if the link is dead then it probably needs creating
- always check by searching that the article does not already exist under a different title
