Latest review

First review round: 12.3 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

There was a relatively long delay in receiving the peer review and editorial decision but this was acknowledged and apologised for by the editors. Despite the lengthy time between submission and rejection it did at least go to a reviewer and the comments were very fair and clearly from a topic expert.
