Elite Reviewer Spotlight: James Tibone

In honor of Peer Review Week, JBJS is pleased once again 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:

James Tibone

Affiliation:

Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic

USC. Los Angeles, CA

Years in practice: 40

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

They needed reviewers for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery in the American Journal of Sports Medicine when I first started in practice. I later became an associate editor for the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery which I did for 10 years. I was then asked to review for the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

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

Study the methods of the manuscript carefully as this usually determines if the paper is acceptable for publication.

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

I read multiple orthopedic journals including arthroscopy, JBJS, JSES, AJSM, CORR, and JAAOS. For fun, I read Harlan Coben fictional novels which are mystery novels.
