To JBJS Reviewers, Authors, and Readers: Thank You!
We also express our appreciation to our authors, who entrust their best work to our peer-review processes. We hope that they will continue to find this process valuable—not only when their paper is among the 17% of submissions that we accept for publication but also as an opportunity to strengthen their work, based on our reviewers’ input, for publication elsewhere. We have worked hard to decrease the time from submission to publication by 4 months in the past 2 years and will continue our efforts to make it as easy as possible for our reviewers and editors to respond as quickly as possible while maintaining our high standards.
I personally want to thank the JBJS staff, whose work and standard setting for quality and accuracy have continued to improve over the 128 years of our journal’s history.
Finally, we are grateful to those who read JBJS, search our archives, listen to our podcasts, follow us on social media, and participate in our CME activities. Below, we provide for your review a table (Table I) listing statistics on those and other activities in the past year, and we will continue to do this on an annual basis.
Our goal is to provide the community of musculoskeletal caregivers with the best information available to share with their patients in making treatment decisions. Again, thanks to our reviewers, authors, and readers for allowing us to accomplish that goal.
