Latest review

First review round: 10.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

After 2 months and 10 days of wait, we received the reject notification from the editor, motivated by meagre and minimal review. The reviewer stated our dataset was too small, and recommended to turn down the article. I agree that the dataset was small, but that's not a good reason to reject an article in my opinion. It looked like the reviewer was unable to assess the scientific relevance of our study results.
