How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
I was asked to review after meeting Dr. Swiontkowski.
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
Provide honest and timely reviews.
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
I’m currently reading Anders Ericsson’s book Peak that discusses how deliberate practice affects people’s performance. I’m not finished yet, but it’s interesting to see how deliberate practice can elevate performance.
