I am asking because I feel I might be declining more reviews than my fair share.
On the other hand, for every single one of those papers, I felt I was not in a place to judge them, because reading the abstract I saw that they were not closely related to my field of expertise.
I think that in the last year I reviewed slightly less than half of the papers sent my way, declining the rest.
Is this normal? Or am I being seen as lazy by the editors?
If it is relevant, it is from an important journal where I once submitted a paper, but it did not get published there in the end.
