How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
My senior partners were doing it and so I got hooked. In the case of JBJS, I knew Dr. Andy Green and he knew me, and he began inviting me to review for the journal.
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
Accept the invitations whenever possible, then read the manuscript carefully and try and understand the context and the methods. Don’t get too caught up in the minutiae.
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
Just finished reading Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers. Very provocative.
