A third reason could be that journals and publishers are increasingly multinational. During the past, the editor and editorial table of a journal knew both scientific field it covered and the people employed in it, but it’s almost impossible to become sufficiently well connected when both editors and submissions come from across the world. Having authors suggest the best reviewers may therefore look like a good idea. In the aftermath of the recent scandals involving fake peer reviewers, many journals are determined to carefully turn off the reviewer-recommendation option on their manuscript-submission systems.
