How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?
Immediately after fellowship, I became interested in assisting in journal reviews. There is no question, reviewing manuscripts and research makes me a better critical thinker, researcher, and author!
What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?
Review each article with the perspective as if it was your own manuscript. Even if the manuscript represents research that you do not feel is fit for JBJS, there is value in your review. Spend time to critique the manuscript in an effort to make it better!
Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?
Like most, I have been on top of the daily news more so now than ever before. Editorials on COVID and the politics of this year have become entertaining!
