Latest review

First review round: 4.3 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

As the best comment may serve the first review I've got: This paper has not reached to the acceptable level for publication in this top journal and lacks originality and novelty. The technical depth of this paper is superficial. No new techniques are presented in this paper. Authors need to bring novelty and originality to their work. Thus, the paper in the current form is not suitable for publication in this top journal. I reject this paper. which is a clear evidence that the reviewer has not seen the work. The editor should not allow such reviews.
