Get to know the editorial board

How long have you been on the board?

Since 2015, I think, and speciality editor for knee surgery since 2016 as I recall, but Emma may correct me!

How did you first get involved with The Bone & Joint Journal?

As a trainee, publishing a research paper in the BJJ (JBJS-Br back then, of course) was a huge privilege and I was always conscious of this being the most highly regarded journal amongst fellow surgeons. I became a reviewer and gained enormous enjoyment and insights from analysing and offering constructive criticism of submissions. I believe my reviews were appreciated by the editorial team and ultimately I was asked to join the board before being asked to have oversight of the knee submissions in my current role of Speciality Editor.

What is the best thing about being on the board?

I get to read the latest research in my field before anyone else and help to curate the best work for publication. The board meetings are great fun, with vigorous discourse on the most contentious submissions. It really is a privilege to hear the views of fellow board members, the most illustrious researchers in our speciality.

What one piece of advice would you give to others who might like to get more involved with The Bone & Joint Journal?

Reviewing submissions is the key activity that allows colleagues to take part in the Journal’s activities. The best reviewers help improve submissions with their insights and through their enthusiasm identify themselves as future potential board members. I am personally enormously grateful to all of our reviewers and we simply couldn’t function without the time and effort they so generously provide in helping us select the best work for publication.
