Hi again folks, I've got a specific situation for which I'm in need of your expertise. I'm gathering some manuscripts and I've set a deadline for sending them. All authors will abide to that deadline. However, it is common knowledge that people often wait until the last minute to do something. This is why I'd like to politely ask authors not to leave it to the last day to send their content. The main reason I am doing this is because I want to avoid stockpiling manuscripts. I'd much rather start reviewing papers one by one in advance. So basically, I need your help to build up a sentence in which I kindly ask authors to send me the manuscripts a.s.a.p. even though they are not obliged to do so. Any suggestions? All I can think of sounds weird... Thanks a lot!
