Latest review

First review round: 30.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Withdrew manuscript from journal due to inordinate delays after 18 months. It was an invited paper for a special issue by guest editors. Unfortunately, the guest editors were not able to make definitive editorial decisions but were required to have all decisions cleared by the editor in chief. Some of the papers eventually published in the special issue were in review for 2 years.
