Requests for reviews of a manuscript / proposal.

Please email the title, authors, and if possible the abstract / project summary, and I'll let you know as soon as possible if I can review the manuscript / proposal.  If the request is from a journal I publish in or an organization I receive research funding from, I will try my hardest to find time.  Even then, however, my review inbox sometimes gets so backlogged that it's hopeless to add another, and in that case I believe it's better to say 'no' at the outset than to leave you and the author / principal investigator hanging for an unfairly long period of time.
