Latest review

First review round: 42.6 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

A message "Editor assignment pending" was seen in the editorial system during 270 days (almost 9 months). My 4 letters to the editors received no answer or automatic answer "Your paper is with the editor for his evaluation and the review process will be initiated soon". I just planned to withdraw the manuscript when at last I got the message "Under review" and after a month rejection.
