Sarah DeWitt, MD
OSFA

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
Being the middle-aged private practice orthopedist with kids, I like being able to do something semi-academic. I am science geek at heart, but just cannot manage all the demands of academia and shepherd a family at the same time. This is my way to have my cake and eat it too!

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
It is always hard. But, I find that to go to a course and earn CME is more time consuming than this. So I do it on a weekend when my kids are doing homework.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
I would like to see JBJS offer more free online CME options. We orthopedists need a steady diet of intellectual nourishment and there are so many barriers. More paperwork.

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
JBJS claims the pride of place as a publication medium for contemporary orthopaedic research to sustain the traditional hallmark of excellence as the highest impact orthopaedic journal in the world for the foreseeable future. As the old adage says, excellence breeds excellence. In fact, now JBJS represents a uniquely comprehensive group of journals across the spectrum of evidence and access in orthopaedic literature with similar emphasis on the quality of rigorous peer review as well as editorial direction, supervision, active participation and final production. The team effort and leadership by example are obvious.

Instead of resting on past laurels, JBJS has adapted to 21st century changes in publication of orthopaedic research with systems for distinctive dual content review and methodological review. JBJS is also dynamic in consistently exploring avenues for improvements and represents the pinnacle of publication for original scientific and clinical research for scientific advances and clinical application. It is exciting to be in the centre of this unique focus, fervor and diversity of developments for the progress of orthopaedic knowledge at the expanding horizons to grace the glorious frontiers and participate in shaping the future. It is an honor and challenge to make a mark as a reviewer for JBJS’ range of journals.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
An effective review process is a preamble to editorial review and decision and mirrors the quality of published research. If the former is a window, the latter is a door for ventilation of research. Both function in tandem to facilitate a vital view of research for creative excellence and pioneering contribution to trauma and orthopaedic surgery. I believe that this call of pioneering duty for present and future generations is effectively an extended clinical endeavor with no option of backtracking. So naturally I make time outside my clinical commitments without any reservations.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
JBJS is in the pole position to play a pivotal role as a purveyor of ideal current orthopaedic practice and a driver of unique synthesis of interchangeable application of research and clinical practice in trauma and orthopaedic surgery for evidence-based practice in the new millennium.

Robert_Barth
Robert J. Barth, PhD
rjbarth@barthneuroscience.org

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
Each manuscript provides an opportunity to review what has been published previously on the topic, to see what the authors of the current manuscript have to say about what has been previously published, and to see what the other reviewers of the manuscript have to say about all of the above.  That process demands an unusually thorough consideration of the relevant scientific knowledge base.  For manuscripts which survive the first round of review, the process of recommending and considering modifications results in an even deeper discussion of the relevant issues, to an extent that is extremely rare outside of such a process.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
Because each reveiw must be completed in a very short period of time, I have to make time (rather than finding time), by postponing previous commitments, forgoing sleep,etc.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
I hope I am helping JBJS lead orthopaedics, and health care in general, more and more in the direction of scientific credibility, in order to facilitate better health outcomes.

Javad Parvizi, MD
Rothman Institute

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
Learning about the frontiers. The majority of papers pertain to novel ideas or developments in the field. Every investigator targets JBJS first with their novel discoveries and findings. As a reviewer, we get a peek at these before everyone else. It is like attending the preview of movies before the release.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
This is an ongoing issue for us all. There is simply not enough time for us to do what we want. Reviewing for any journals, particularly JBJS, is an academically important activity. I have a half a day per week when I try to accomplish all my “deadline” academic activities. Reviewing  for JBJS usually occurs at that time of the week or after midnight when everyone is asleep.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
JBJS continues to be the go-to journal for many of us who are interested in cutting edge science and discoveries. With the amazing Editor-in-Chief we have in place and the team that he has organized, JBJS continues to play that role better and better each day. I see JBJS becoming the Nature equivalent of science in orthopaedics.

Dana Mears, MD
University of Pittsburgh Medical Center- Shadyside Hospital

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
A review of many manuscripts provides an opportunity to evaluate topics from a markedly different perspective than I previously might have done. This is an incentive to reappraise the background literature and to reflect upon a controversial topic.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I earmark late Sunday mornings for these assignments, when I am rested and not distracted by clinical activities.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
A principal role is to provide a forum for meticulously documented publications in topics of major interest to orthopedists that provide an incentive for further investigations and a constructive evolution of the field.

Peer Review Week Day 1-PM

JBJS is helping celebrate Peer Review Week 2017 by formally recognizing some of its top reviewers for their contributions. Each day during Peer Review Week 2017, JBJS will profile six different top reviewers on OrthoBuzz each morning and afternoon. This afternoon, let’s meet Simon Lambert, Dionysios-Alexandros Verettas, and Luke McDonald.

Simon_Lambert
Simon Lambert, MD
University College London Hospital

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
I value the opportunity to learn new ideas and understand current concepts and clinical practice in my field of surgery while contributing to the endeavour to maintain the high quality of evidence and scientific argumentation that defines a high-level framework of thinking.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I always carry my laptop with me to read each paper a number of times during those gaps in the working day that inevitably open up. After evening family time, I review references for relevance and, in doing so, follow each reference’s trail to be clear how that reference has been used in the paper. I use the challenge of my own rudimentary knowledge of statistics to look up and understand the various tests to try to be clear they have been used appropriately. I will then formulate a list of impressions and comments on my note pad. I review this list after a week or so and then write my review having considered each paper a number of times.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
I believe the JBJS has a number of important roles:
1. to maintain a high standard of scientific communication (a technical role);
2. to maintain and develop clinical practice commensurate with evolving scientific knowledge (an instructional and moderating role);
3. to promote research [into epidemiology, basic science (biological and mechanical), applied science, and audit of practice] which forms the foundation for novel interventions and future technologies (a forward-facing role).

dionysios_verettas
Dionysios-Alexandros Verettas, MD
Democritus University of Thrace, Greece

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
Since the JBJS is the most prestigious journal of orthopaedics, the majority of the papers submitted are of high quality and thus give the oportunity to the reviewer to follow the most up-to-date research. I must add that the editorial office make the JBJS one of the most reviewer-friendly journals.

Q3  How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I find that the best time for reviewing is after office hours, when some relaxation is needed.

Q4  What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
JBJS certainly plays a prime role in shaping the future of orthopaedics both in research and in education and training, at least in the USA. However, I would like the journal to include views and strategies that could apply to Europe as well.

ASSH
Luke McDonald, MD
Naval Medical Center San Diego

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
I enjoy reviewing for JBJS as the manuscripts are well-written, allowing me to focus on the research rather than the writing style, and assigned topics fall within my areas of interest.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I am privileged to have the opportunity to review for JBJS, and build the time into my schedule, usually between cases or in the evenings.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
Despite the rise of multiple subspecialty journals, JBJS remains the premier orthopaedic journal, disseminating quality literature to all subspecialty fields.

Peer Review Week Day 1-AM

JBJS is helping celebrate Peer Review Week 2017 by formally recognizing some of its top reviewers for their contributions. Each day during Peer Review Week 2017, JBJS will profile six different top reviewers on OrthoBuzz each morning and afternoon. This morning, let’s meet Benjamin “Kyle” Potter, Steve Elder, David H. Kim.

Benjamin_Potter
Benjamin “Kyle” Potter, MD
Walter Reed National Military Medical Center

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
It gives me a sneak peek at some of what is coming in the Journal and forces me to really examine the article I am reviewing, and as a consequence other articles, with a more discerning and intellectually inquiring eye.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I have no idea – we’re surgeons, we make time.  Seriously, while the cumulative time to do a good review can be onerous, it is not that difficult to read an article in whole or part, take some notes, and then write/dictate/transcribe the longer review later when you have some more time.  So breaking it up helps, makes it more feasible and I think actually results in a better review than just cranking it out all at once, because you have some time to let the paper marinate.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
I think the quality and focus of the content of our top journals like JBJS have a critical role in shaping how quickly and broadly new techniques or findings are adopted, and can further shape the emphasis of future research and practice changes in response to these same articles.

Steve_Elder
Steve Elder, MD
Mississippi State University

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
I like the process.  Blinding the authors’ identity to reviewers is a practice that I wish other journals would adopt. I also appreciate being notified of the editor’s decision and then being granted access to the comments of the other reviewers.  I like to think reading their critiques helps me improve my own in the future.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I break it down into multiple short sessions.  A careful readthrough of the entire manuscript taking notes during as many short bursts as my schedule will allow, followed by several periods where I mull it over and crystallize my opinion (e.g. while walking to and from meetings across campus), and then a furious bout of writing.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
I believe in evidence-based medicine, and I see JBJS as a major source of the evidence on which I hope clinicians are basing decisions about treatment.  I would also look to JBJS for the most promising experimental approaches.

 

David_Kim
David H. Kim, MD
New England Baptist Hospital

What do you like best about reviewing for JBJS?
Getting first access to the highest quality and most cutting edge orthopaedic research papers.

How do you find time to review for JBJS?
I dedicate every Wednesday afternoon to research and performing peer-review.

What do you see as JBJS‘ role in shaping the future of orthopaedics?
JBJS plays a critical role in screening and assessing all new scientific and technical developments in orthopaedics to make sure that its readership is exposed to only the highest-quality studies and most promising new advances.
