Latest review

First review round: 9.7 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Rejected.

My coauthor and I felt stuck with this project so we sent it off to get some critical feedback. I was worried about a desk reject but the editor sent it out to external reviewers. There were two reviewers who suggested a denial and the other two suggested an R&R with major revisions. The feedback included suggestions for additional data and clarifying theoretical frameworks. The editor was an expert on the topic I was writing on, so he gave us a thorough feedback in his letter too. He suggested a denial, but I was not surprised by the result.
