Latest review

First review round: 78.1 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The editor was impolite, not responsive, irresponsible. Reviewers were unprofessional and showed no strengths and responsibilities in performing their peer review duty. In fact, having reject decisions was nothing new to an experienced author, but the way this journal handled their manuscript and treated the submitter was really terrible and totally unacceptable, an experience that I could not forget after many years.
