First review round: 6.3 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
In the first round of reviews, I felt that the reviewers and editor put quite a bit of effort into providing really thorough reviews and I feel that my revisions, which required reanalyzing data, did improve the paper, but then they rejected it for lack of novelty. I just feel that if that is what they are going to judge a manuscript on, they should not invite a resubmit - that was irresponsible.
