Thank You, JBJS Reviewers

During the 2017 AAOS Annual Meeting in San Diego next week, JBJS will formally recognize its 30 Elite Reviewers.

In the days leading up to the Annual Meeting, we would like to profile and thank some of our additional outstanding reviewers. Today, let’s meet John L. Eady and William M. Ricci:

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
The trust placed in my reviewing abilities by the editors of JBJS as
well as the authors who submit their works for consideration for
publication.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
One doesn’t “find” the time to do the reviews. The time has to be set
aside and dedicated to doing the review as soon as an invitation to
review is received.

What do you see as JBJS’ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
It will become even more labor-intensive to achieve the core goals of
selecting well-written, evidence-based articles for publication as the
age of instant, unsubstantiated messaging proliferates. The
leadership of JBJS will need skills unheard of presently to create
new methods which insure the continued selection of core
knowledge that shapes the direction of value-based orthopaedics.

for it.

What do you see as JBJS’ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
JBJS provides the orthopaedic community an opportunity to see
what peers believe is important in the field.

One response to “Thank You, JBJS Reviewers”

  1. Fred RT Nelson says :

    Beyond being a “go to” journal for any orthopaedic surgeon, seasoned or in training, this resource is one designed to highlight a “need to know’ cadre of information critical to current best care information. Obviously, our belief pendulums swing and our current ideas of the best for our patients goes though cycles that may be decades in length. However, this journal reflects the best effort to balance past with the future. As a “seasoned” if “not well done” orthoapeadist I have that resident’s enthusiasm for what I need to know for the next person with a musculoskeletal concern.
