Latest review

First review round: 16.3 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

14 weeks after submission I sent an email to the editor inquiring on the unusual length of the review. Within one hour I received a rejection email. Who knows how long had the editor sat on our reviews, and how they made a haste decision immediately after receiving my message. This did not feel at all like a professional and thorough evaluation of the reviewers' comments, which were easily addressable. Ultimately the paper was published in a journal of higher impact and has been cited >100 times.
