Latest review

First review round: 6.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

My sense is that the journal just didn't find our study interesting enough. Comments from reviewers were mainly positive, though the few critiques they did have will be helpful for resubmitting the paper elsewhere.
