Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

The majority of authors that published in this journal are coming from Australia, with minority from all other countries together. After the submission of the manuscript, the Editorial Office needed even 2 weeks to complete pre-review checks. After the long review process by an editor (without sending to external reviewers), the article was rejected with compliments and one vague reason difficult to understand. The editor wished to remain anonymous. I do not recommend submitting to this journal despite strangely high IF as the quality of review is very bad.
