Elite Reviewer Spotlight: Harry McKellop

JBJS is pleased to highlight our Elite Reviewers. The Elite Reviewers Program recognizes our best reviewers for their outstanding efforts. All JBJS reviewers help us maintain the highest standards for quality orthopaedic publishing.

Name: Harry A. McKellop


Emeritus Professor in Residence

The UCLA and Orthopaedic Institute for Children Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

Los Angeles, CA

Years in practice: I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics). I was involved in orthopaedic research beginning in 1970 until I retired at the end of 2013.

How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?

I was invited to be a reviewer.

What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?

Provide constructive comments. Focus on those aspects of the research project that, if published, would be useful to the orthopaedic community, and advise the authors how to appropriately emphasize them in their manuscript.

Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?

Biographies of Napoleon Bonaparte and Leonardo da Vinci.
