Latest review

First review round: 3.1 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Journal was very quick. One review was of good quality, constructive and definitely improved the manuscript. Reviewer 3 was embarrassing and unfair: "It is not clear if this correlation was corrected for multiple comparisons (p=0.16/3 = 0.048)" on a correlation reported in MS of (r = -0.63; p < 0.016) and reviewer 4 was embarrassing. Both not appear to be experts on the topic. Reviewers bad choice and superficial assessment of associate editor.
