First review round: 29.4 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

- The process took 11 months in total, thus 7 months the first revision round and 3.5 months the second. The editor didn't replay to any email and only due to the elsevier chat was possible to obtain updates. - The final decision arrived one week after we asked to withdraw the manuscript. Even if we officially asked to withdraw the manuscript (3.5 months after the 2nd submission) the editor didn't withdraw the submission but reject the manuscript. - The manuscript was rejected why we didn't run a new -minimum- 2 years experiment, different in respect the current one. However, the editor gave us only 3 weeks to submit the revised version (minor revision was requested). - The reviewer of 2nd round had the number #3, but in the 1st round we got the comments of reviewer #1 and reviewer #2. The editor never replay if the reviewer #3 was the same as reviewer #1 or #2. Therefor we assume that was one of the first two. It could be that was a third reviewer that we never got his/her comments.
