Latest review

First review round: 26.9 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

After 27 weeks, we received a very positive review and a very negative one. The two reviews were clearly contradictory on several points. Moreover, the negative one was full of factual errors. The editor made no effort to reconcile the contradictions between the two reviews (e.g., by asking us to refute the critiques, by inviting an additional reviewer, or by evaluating the paper the editor himself).
