Latest review

First review round: 9.9 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

Two reviewers recommended rejection due to "no new insights". The third reviewer recommended publishing after minor revisions. One reviewer did not provide any explanation why our findings could not constitute "new insights", the text of his review could be equally easily used for other manuscripts, not just ours. The other rejecting reviewer provided some itemization, which was debatable, but we did not pursue with any appeal.
