How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
I received an invitation from an editor, and I was recommended to contact JBJS with regard to potentially reviewing by an esteemed colleague.
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
Be sensible with your reviewer workload. A well-done review usually requires good time commitment and effort – this is sometimes hard to achieve if you have too many demands on your plate at the time.
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
I was recently invited to co-author a review article for one of the anaesthetic journals – I have been busily reading anaesthetic manuscripts!
