First review round: 5.9 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Rejected.

The editor was extremely professional and went out of her way to be fair. Although the reviewers rejected the manuscript, the editor allowed us to send a rebuttal. The reviewers were irrational and unwilling to listen to any argument. I think the editor knew that the reviewers were wrong but she couldn't do anything to change the outcome. In my experience, reviewers are always responsible for the current situation in the manuscript review process.
