JHS has New Review Editor

Journal of Hand Surgery

Scott Kozin, MD
The Journal Advisory Committee (JAG) was created in 2007 at the same time that JASSH was rolled into JHS to create a single journal.  The purpose of the committee is to engage in strategic planning and oversight between the publisher, the JHS editors and Council.
Before being elected as president-elect of the Council and subsequently appointed to chair the JAG, I served as the JHS Review Editor for five years.  While I enjoyed my stint as editor, it’s time for me to step down from that position so that I may devote more attention to Council, JAG and other ASSH responsibilities.  This left an opening in the Review Editor position. 
JAG put out a call for candidates for the position, and we are now pleased to announce that the Council has approved the appointment of Ghazi Rayan, MD to the position of Review Editor for JHS.  Ghazi has an incredible track record of exemplary work, and I’m excited to see what he brings to the Review Section in the coming years. 
Congratulations, Dr. Rayan!

Search Tips

Tip 1: Start with the basics like “carpal tunnel.” You can always add more words later to narrow down results.

Tip 2: Choose words carefully and avoid terms that do not concern surgery.

Tip 3: Avoid capitalization and conjunctions like “the,” “and,” “or,” or “in.” Also, avoid using media types like “video,” “article,” and “picture.”

Tip 4: Your results can be refined by using either the tabs at the top (Video, Articles/WEB, Images, JHS, Products/Vendors), or the filters on the left (Filter by Source, Filter by Format, Filter by Purpose, etc.).

Tip 5: Punctuation can enhance your search as well. Use quotes (“search term”) to only include pages with the same words in the same order. But only use this if you are looking for an exact word or phrase, otherwise you may exclude helpful results. Add an asterisk (search term*) as a placeholder for any unknown or wildcard terms. For example, C*l Tunnel would give you results for Cubital Tunnel and Carpal Tunnel. Place a question mark (search term?) for single-character wildcard matching. For example, pa?ent would give you results for parent, patent, etc. You may also use the plus sign (search + word) between words for words you must have in the results.
