How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
Andy Green invited me to review a manuscript on shoulder arthroplasty. Several years later Bernhard Jost began to request reviews, as well. It was an honor that they trusted me and valued my impressions and opinions.
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
Accept the invitation and carve out time to do the review. We are all really busy, but the process is so worthwhile. Think about when you submit a manuscript that you have worked hard on. Don’t you expect someone to do the same?
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
Billionaire’s Vinegar by Benjamin Wallace. Fascinating book about a bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafite Bordeaux wine, supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson, that sold for over $150,000. Was it real or a fake?
