Latest review

First review round: 17.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

We received two reviews: The first one did not provide any information other than the fact that the reviewer advocates of a different research tradition to the approach used in the paper. Weirdly the second reviewer had no idea about the methodological paradigm and method adopted in the study. - The journal claims to be open to various methodological and theoretical approaches. If this is the case, they need to assign manuscripts to competent reviewers. This review process was a waste of time for everyone involved.
