Latest review

First review round: 6.4 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

I submitted the manuscript in September and it went through two revisions before letting me know that is was not acceptable in March since it was not registered . This is something they could have put in their instructions for authors (like other journals) or they could have even have informed before sending it out to the reviewers or even after the first review (since I told them at this time that we did not register the study). We chose this journal since it did not state that this was a requirement for the journal. To take 7 months of time and 2 revisions is totally unprofessional and unacceptable. This was not a trivial waste of my time. I will not submit to this journal ever again. One of my friends had a similarly unprofessional experience.
