Name: Shivi Duggal, MD, MBA, MPH
Affiliation: SUNY Albany School of Public Health, Rensselaer, NY
Years in practice: I am a recent medical school graduate. I took some time after my medical school graduation to pursue and complete my public health degree.
How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
I contacted the editorial department and applied.
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
The best advise I can provide to reviewers is to make sure once a week time is set aside to perform reviews, so you can provide ideal reviews in an efficient timely manner. This will not only benefit you as a reviewer, but also benefit the journal and those submitting manuscript to the journal.
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
