I've been thinking a lot about this problem. It seems to me that some kind of credit system is needed---you referee papers promptly, this gives you credits that entitle you to prompt referring of your papers. Such a system obviously faces many challenges and could potentially disadvantage some people (people that don't get to make credits because they are not invited to referee). But I think there might be ways to make it work so that it's at least better for everyone than the current system. Journal editors who are potentially interested should contact me--I'd be interested in trying to work out the details with input from editors. Maybe one day this can be taken on as part of the PhilPapers ecosystem.
