Dear Mr. Cris:
The Anesthesiology Editorial Office utilizes a Web-based manuscript submission and tracking system, Editorial Manager (EM). We have entered your name and address information into the EM system, as a REVIEWER, in anticipation of inviting you to review a manuscript. As a matter of information:
Once you have been invited to review a manuscript submission, we hope you will agree to provide this service for the Journal.
We look forward to working with you as an Anesthesiology reviewer. Thank you for your commitment.

Interesting. I've only just started writing yet they have asked me to be a peer reviewer for the journal. Interesting and flattering. My first paper was just published, so maybe that's why? There might not be too many people out there doing my type of research.
At the end of the day I received a second email. As background, it is the "season" of writing and submitting abstracts for research conferences for me. I received the following email on one I had submitted. This happens to be the official conference for anesthesiologists, with roughly 20,000 people attending. This is HUGE and is a nice nod to the work we've been doing. Renee will remember me desperately trying to submit them while at her apartment hijacking some poor neighbor's wireless.
Dear Mr. Cris,
It is my pleasure to inform you that your abstract, Remifentanil-Propofol Effect-Site Concentrations that Lead to Airway Obstruction and/or Intolerable Ventilatory Depression: Building a Response Surface Model for Respiratory Compromise, has been chosen for presentation in the 2011 ASA Best Abstracts. Congratulations! There were many outstanding abstracts this year, and yours was among the top chosen for this session. This will be an oral presentation, and you will receive a formal notice from the ASA in the next few weeks providing the full details.
Anesthesiology sponsors sessions at the ASA Annual Meeting in order to highlight important research in our specialty and to recruit manuscript submissions from these special sessions to highlight in the Journal. As you may have seen, the April 2011 issue of the Journal consists entirely of original investigations and review articles from the sessions we sponsored last year, and we hope to do this in the coming year as well.
I therefore invite you to prepare a full length manuscript for submission to us for consideration for publication in the April 2012 issue of Anesthesiology.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and please respond to this email to the Editorial Office on whether you intend to submit your work for consideration for publication in Anesthesiology. Thank you for your consideration, and, again, congratulations on your outstanding work!
James C. Eisenach, MD
