I submitted a paper to a high impact Elsevier journal. However, the problem is things going very slowly. In fact the first reviewer submitted his comments after 30 days exactly which is today but the other one didn't bother at all to accept or decline the invitation.
I'm a reviewer myself and I know sometimes you get busy but this behavior of not declining annoys me so much. If you are busy, just decline and not leave the invitation without respond for over 30 days. What do you suggest? Should I contact the editor and encourage him to take the process himself since it requires 2 reviewers to take decision, or should I suggest other reviewers which may/may not respond to the invitation & take another 30 days or more to respond.
It's been more than 8 weeks since the initial submission and going this way the research loses its novelty since others will implement what I found. So any suggestions?
