Latest review

First review round: 69.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

16 months for review is unacceptable. I waited patiently until the 5th month and only received excuses about the length of the review process. I asked to withdraw my paper after 12 months, and the editorial staff could not complete this request properly. The quality of the review was fine, and the article was eventually published elsehwere.
