Elite Reviewer Spotlight: Adolph Yates

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:

Adolph “Chick” Yates, Jr., MD

Affiliation:

University of Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, PA

Years in practice: 31

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

For some I volunteered and for others I got “volunteered”.

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

  1. Take on every request
  2. Strive to make the review helpful to the author(s).
  3. Look for ways to reward hard work that needs help getting expressed.

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

Given the election year, the offerings from Real Clear Politics as well as multiple papers on COVID-19 from PubMed searches.
