Latest review

First review round: 21.7 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

We received two reviewer reports after almost five months. One of the reviewers did not read the paper at all and criticized us not using some key resources, despite in reality those resources were over-used in the research. Other reviewer brought in their own methodological choice and criticised the research on having an institutional approach rather than a bottom-up approach. The editors were not responsive and we believe they handled the submission very poorly.
