Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
Even though I have published two papers in the LUP in the years of 2019 and 2021, I am not satisfied with long initial screening periods after 2021. The editor rejected the paper after 4 months despite dozens of similar papers in the same journal. You need to click on a confirmation statement when you submit your paper. It states "The initial review process can last up to 4 months". Alarming. A waste of time. Besides, I realized that some papers written by the colleagues in the network of the editorial board can be accepten within significantly shorter times. I suppose that the LUP works on a basis of "rendez-vous". I will not prefer to submit my works to the LUP any more.
