Latest review

First review round: 38.3 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Drawn back.

Journal editorial process was discourteous and unprofessional in handling my manuscript in a timely manner to promote findings towards publication. The editorship took an unreasonably long time to produce reviews and allowed a number of unsubstantiated, tangential reviews to be submitted. Also, unclear guidance was provided in terms of editing that provided little direction and contradictory instructions. Overall, a poor performance of editorship and scholarly peer review process characterized my experience at JHCPU.
