Latest review

First review round: 2.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The reviewers were not familiar with my field of research and did not understand the implications of the results. They seemed only to be interested in their own types of investigation in the field of combustion. One of them made rather condescending comments. The other was partially positive. It might have been possible to submit a revision, but the attitudes of reviewers and editor dissuaded me, and I published a revised paper in another, better journal, with which I am very happy.
