Latest review

First review round: 90.1 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Handling was completely unethical. Writing that a work has 'not suitable level of rigour' without a single example of a mathematical errors/imprecision is nonsense. It prevents even resubmission to another journal: most likely, the same people are going to handle the work and think: 'oh, that is the same erroneous work, not even corrected', which would lead to another rejection without examination. Since this case concerns violation of basic scientific principles, it requires full transparency; thus a complete correspondence with the journal has been made public: https://users.mccme.ru/mskopenkov/other/lmp.html
