Latest review

First review round: 9.3 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Rejected.

The manuscript was sent to reviewers very quickly. Although the reviews were mixed, with one proposing minor revisions and others raising issues that could be handled within a revision, the editors explained their rejection well and even proposed a prioritization of the reviewers' comments and suggested outlets to sent the manuscript next to.
