Latest review

First review round: 34.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

8 months after submission, we received two reviews. One was positive, the other had criticisms that were subjective, minor, or readily addressed. The paper was rejected without the opportunity to revise or address the criticisms. We submitted it to another journal with a similar impact factor. It was reviewed there in 3 weeks. We revised to address minor suggestions from the reviewers. It was published 9 weeks after the initial submission to the second journal.
