First review round: 9.7 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

The Chief Editor wrote "Your manuscript has been examined editorially and I regret that I am rejecting it without formal review". This was followed by the comments of the Subject Editor referring to that "the manuscript has received three excellent reviews, recommending either ‚reject’ (Reviewer 1) or ‚requiring substantial revision and re-re-view’ (Reviewers 2 & 3). The reviewers´ comments were not provided to us. We had to ask for these and it took some days to get them. The comments were not available in the online system either.
