Who do you select when listing potential reviewers for your manuscripts?
I go for suggestions that I think will be favorably inclined toward acceptance. This may be primarily because they work on similar stuff (otherwise they aren't going to be engaged at all) but also because I think* they are favorable towards my laboratory.
(I have also taken to making sure I suggest at least 50% women but that is a different matter.)
I wouldn't suggest anyone that violates the clearest statement of automatic COI that pertains to me, i.e. the NIH grant review 3-year window of collaboration.
Where do you get your standards?
