Two Weeks? I Think Not

According to this post, journals are starting to ask referees to get their reviews back in two weeks.  Sure, but only if you want an incredible commitment.  I have the same standards for journals as I do for my grad students--give me a month, and I will certainly get the piece and read and provide comments.  Give me two weeks, and you cannot expect me to meet the deadline.  I am not a genius at planning, so I don't leave time in my schedule just in case articles show up to be reviewed. 

We shall see if this becomes a trend/standard, but my guess it will only be the case if they end up wanting to chase away lots of potential reviewers.
