"With JBJS Reviews, we are continuing to respond to the information needs of our audience," commented Kent Anderson, CEO and Publisher at JBJS, Inc.  "We know that review articles are essential reading for orthopaedists at all stages of their careers.  With JBJS Reviews, we are committed to providing quality review content authored by recognized experts, and publishing online enables us to publish continuously, accelerating information transfer," added Anderson. "We also have seen an increase in the number of orthopaedic surgeons adopting tablets like the iPad and the Galaxy in the clinical setting and to access information.  JBJS Reviews has been built with both iOS and Android apps. Users can access articles and take integrated CME exams to affirm their knowledge.  We think this will put important information even closer to our users and increases its interactivity."
