Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
This journal is in melt-down. I was written to a few weeks ago to say there had been a huge backlog in dealing with submissions and an 'internal problem'. Now I get a desk reject with no reason provided. Unless you have 8 weeks to waste, I highly recommend that you do NOT submit anything to this journal. Appalling behaviour really.
