Not sure how to get started as a journal reviewer? Or not exactly sure how to properly review a journal article? If you are a current adult reconstruction fellow or recent graduate, please consider participating in the new Journal of Arthroplasty (JOA) Reviewer Mentorship Program. This program will pair you with a current JOA Elite Reviewer to help coach you through your first reviews and to be available for questions and feedback as you get started. Participating in the peer review process can make you a better clinician but improving your understanding of the scientific method and the publication process makes you a better writer. This opportunity will also get you started in volunteerism—a core value that ensures the success of AAHKS.
To find out more, please join the FOCAL Webinar, How to Review Manuscripts: From Randomized Studies to Database Studies and Meta-Analyses, on Monday, August 31 at 7:00 p.m. (Central). Register!
