Latest review

First review round: 3.9 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
Had a nice review process with Blood. Smooth submission and relatively fast turnaround seeing as it was sent to two external reviewers. While a rejection is fine, some of the issues they found were actually addressed in the paper & stemmed from the reviewers simply skimming the paper. A bit frustrating but understandable given high impact journals are certainly swamped with submissions. I would have preferred a longer wait to allow the reviewers time to actually thoroughly read and understand the article.
