Latest review

First review round: 3.7 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Crazy review process. We got: major revision / major revision / minor revision / it can be accepted after quick fix-ups / REJECTED. We were very close to the acceptance, and on the penultimate email from the editor Edward Ciaccio we received an email with the following text: > Your manuscript has been carefully reviewed, and we would be happy to publish it, > provided that it is revised in accordance with the enclosed reviewers' comments. The comments were about the improvement of the English grammar of the article. We asked a colleague to perform an English proof-reading and addressed all the changes. Then the editor decided to reject the paper in the end because of few sentences with English mistakes. I will never submit an article to this journal ever again.
