Latest review

First review round: 10.6 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

One of the reviewers really liked the manuscript while the second reviewer showed very biased opinions on the theory behind out study case. The comments were useful and will help improving the manuscript, but we wished there would have been a third reviewer. Also, the whole review process got delayed from the expected 50 days announced in the journal's website to 75 days.
