Introduction

I have over three years of clinical and industry experience where I have gained experience in pharmacotherapy, provided excellent patient counseling, built strong communication skills, gained an eye for detail, worked on collaborative teams, established great working relationships, and completed multiple projects related to improving patient health. I earned my doctor of pharmacy from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Pharmacy and a master of business administration in health organization management from Texas Tech University that gives me a unique clinical and entrepreneurial background. I am also a board certified pharmacotherapy specialist. During my pharmacy residency, I further expanded my clinical skill-set, completed a retrospective chart review published in a peer-reviewed journal, and gained real-world experience in a fast-paced, patient-centered, 600+ bed hospital. During my time in industry, I worked with C-suite executives and clinicians to build a pharmacogenetics platform as well as educate physicians on how to select medications that would be best suited for their patients. Furthermore, I am an author on over two dozen peer-reviewed publications, authored a white paper on pharmacogenetics, and wrote a book chapter on drug-induced nausea and vomiting where my work has been cited in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network ovarian cancer guidelines and the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer clinical guidelines. Patient care is my passion.

Peer review and publication delay.

Pharmacy practice

Selecting peer reviewers is a crucial stage of the editorial process that ensures the quality of scholarly publications. An alternative to selecting peer reviewers from data bases created with expressions of interest of volunteers consists in systematically searching PubMed for similar articles and inviting their authors to act as peer reviewers. Although this process might identify more appropriate peers, it also can increase the time of the editorial process. In 2018, Pharmacy Practice had to invite 4.70 (SE=0.33) potential reviewers per one accepting. The time from the first reviewer invitation to the last reviewer report received was 61 days (SE=2.1). These figures confirm the existence of a peer review crisis which is significantly increasing the publication delay.
