Latest review

First review round: 18.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The waiting time for the reviews was relatively long (4 months). While we received helpful feedback from the reviewers and most of their comments were addressable, the editor decided to reject our ms. The main justification for this decision was too high N of submissions per year (over 600) to this journal. In this spirit, to help the editor to limit the N of submissions, my suggestion would be to consider another journal for your ms. Another reason for NOT submitting to the CBSN is a submission fee of $50! A quick calculation: 600 x $50 = $30k annual income for the journal based on such submission fee (sic!)
