Latest review

First review round: 21.9 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

While the review process itself took a legitimate amount of time, after the automatic system indicated that reviews were received, the manuscript remained in the 'awaiting CE decision' for almost two months. We believe that this is unacceptable and delayed our re-submission to another journal for no good reason.
