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

I began reviewing for journals when I was a graduate student.  I don’t recall how I specifically became a JBJS reviewer.

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

Start by stepping back from the details of the article and taking a larger perspective.  What problem are the authors trying to address?  Is the study design appropriate to address the problem or question?  Outline the study in some way and see if it makes overall sense.  Are the authors’ conclusions supported by the results of the study?  After establishing a broad view of the study, you can dive into the details. 

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

I enjoy reading about history as it gives me a perspective on what is happening in today’s world.  My most recent interest has been regarding the history of central Asia.
