Journal Reviewers' Workshop*

Journal Health and Wellness
Edward M. Wojtys, MD Editor in Chief, Sports Health

The medical science publishing industry is in a state of flux! The traditional subscription journal model is being challenged by the open access movement, and authors, medical societies, editors, publishers, and the public should be aware of the forces and challenges involved in this dynamic scenario.

Machine Learning for the Experienced Orthopaedic Reviewer: It May Not Be as Confusing as You Think
David C. Landy, MD, PhD Associate Editor for Clinical Trials and Statistics, American Journal of Sports Medicine

What is machine learning? This workshop will describe its history and attempt to disentangle some of the confusing jargon in this emerging methodological field. Examples from the literature will be used to connect currently used machine learning algorithms to more familiar statistical models and concepts. Finally, potential pros and cons of machine learning in sports medicine will be discussed with a framework for how reviewers can approach the evaluation of manuscripts and articles.

11:45 am - 1:15 pm
