First review round: 11.1 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

1) Rejection was based on a reviewer who was clearly not an expert in the filed. Criticisms didn't have any sense from a methodological point of view, and was not considered in the appeal. 2) The whole revision process with a final decision took 5 months (1 revision and 1 appeal), and communication was extremely slow or no communication at all. 3) It seems that the decision of rejection was based not much on the bad revision of one of the reviewer but on the topic of our study probably not interesting enough for the journal that sent the paper anyway to reviewers with a wait of 11 weeks after the the decision to reject it.
