Latest review

First review round: 66.9 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Drawn back.

It took almost 18 months from first submission to receive the comments of just two reviewers, and when they arrived they were not constructive comments, indeed not very helpful at all. We lost all faith in the review process with this journal to the extent we decided to withdraw the paper even though it had not been rejected.
