First review round: 43.6 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Exceptionally slow review process, with no communication from the journal. Even when we requested updates they just gave non-specific responses. The slowness of review is not acceptable, especially as the manuscript was time sensitive in regards to its material.
