Latest review

First review round: 5.4 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Despite our manuscript going to review straight after submitting, the paper was rejected. We received three fantastic and encouraging reviews, of which highlighted major text changes but did not require new analyses or state any methodological flaws. The reviews do not reflect the decision of reject, especially because the rejection was based on criteria which should have been assessed prior to sending to external review. We contested the decision but subject editor refused to reconsider, despite the positive reviews.
