Latest review

First review round: 21.6 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

The first decision was to make major changes. According to the author, one reviewer is not too competent for certain concepts for which he asked questions, and despite the explanation by the author, he did not understand the concept. After revising the paper according to the reviewers' suggestions, one reviewer proposed major changes again while another reviewer rejected the paper. The editor decided to reject the paper. The reviews did not help to improve the quality of the manuscript.
