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

I started reviewing during my research fellowship. Initially, I had my mentors “review” my reviews to know that I was on the right track. JBJS is the premier orthopedic journal and I started seriously reviewing it during residency. I have overall enjoyed their rigorous review process. The review process is not perfect but the journal strives to be fair and give due consideration to every manuscript.

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

Reviewing is time consuming and usually performed on personal time. However, it is the cornerstone of our ability in orthopedics/musculoskeletal medicine to produce good science.

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

Physical medicine and rehabilitation research
