Latest review

First review round: 20.4 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

The review process was very slow, particularly for a journal that advertises a "fast publication schedule". I had to contact the editorial office on multiple occasions and was asked to provide additional suggestions for potential reviewers. Furthermore, it is clear that acceptance was very unlikely from the outset, as the editor ultimately rejected the basis of the study.
