It takes true dedication to spend time not only perfecting your craft, but also improving the profession as a whole. SBL Hand Surgeon Nash Naam, MD, FACS, has been named one of the 2021 top reviewers for the Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research® (CORR®) journal. The medical article review process enhances manuscripts and makes them more relevant to practicing hand surgeons.
“This is a special group, which represented only about 7 percent of the reviewers in our pool this year. Those who make the list have a rare combination of commitment and skill. We consider their work important both to the success of orthopaedic research, and to our journal,” CORR® editor-in-chief Seth Leopold, MD, explained.
CORR® is a leading peer-reviewed orthopaedic journal and a publication of The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons® devoted to disseminating new and important orthopaedic knowledge. The journal publishes content of value to both generalists and specialists on all aspects of musculoskeletal research, diagnoses, and treatment.
“The manuscript peer review process is essential before the publication of any scientific articles. I take this time-consuming, yet enjoyable, responsibility very seriously. I am grateful that my reviews have been highly rated because it encourages me to be even better,” Dr. Naam remarked.
Editors on the top reviewer list completed four or more reviews between September 2020 and August 2021. The top reviewers had an average analysis score in the “excellent” range. Dr. Naam’s reviewed nine international medical articles in 2021. His contribution was acknowledged in CORR®’s December issue.
Dr. Naam practices at SBL Southern Illinois Hand Center along with Hand Surgeons Patrick Stewart, MD, FACS, and Lisa Sasso, MD, FAAOS, at 901 Medical Park Dr., Effingham. To make an appointment with any of the hand surgeons, call 217 347-3003.
