Journal editors have observed a greater occurrence of reviewers agreeing to peer review but never completing reviews. It seems that the information systems (IS) field increasingly needs more reviewers. In this paper, I consider the reasons why researchers agree to peer review and the professional and ethical conduct of reviewers who agree to review but never do so. Finally, I make suggestions to motivate reviewers to replenish the “commons”.
