Latest review

First review round: 3.1 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

This is a continuation of a previous review. I rebutted the editorial desk rejection after which the manuscript was sent for review and it scored very well with reviewers. Thus, it is obvious that the desk rejection was erroneous and had I not argued against the initial decision, it would have been dumped and we would be figuring out what to do next. Editorial desk rejections are likely to be biased by the interests/expertise of the editor and are generally not likely to truly assess any specific piece of work.
