Latest review Show all reviews

First review round: 32.1 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
Communication was extremely poor. After numerous emails approximately 5 months after submission, the journal finally responded to say they were looking for a second reviewer. The editor was very unresponsive, and did not offer the authors the option of suggesting further reviewers.
