Latest review

First review round: 8.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

The process was very smooth and rather quick. However, the reviewers appear to be completely uninterested in the relevance of the results and appear to focus primarily on whether the method you use is an innovative complex econometric analysis. Thus I would advice to submit there only if you do carry out such an analysis.
