First review round: 30.0 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Two x 30 month review rounds after the first review only suggested minor revisions. In the second round there was one clearly biased reviewer who did not seem to understand the aim of the research and how it differed from the context of their own research (which they wanted us to cite heavily). The editor was clearly out of depth, seemed to have trouble finding and following up on expert reviewers, and in the end deferred to one very biased reviewer.
