Latest review

First review round: 22.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Firstly, I would like to underline that the time was very long. Indeed, I remember that the review process by the reviewers took less than one month but the manuscript stayed a very long time before and after with the editor (4 months in total !). Secondly, if it really was a problem of scope why sending it to reviewers (wasting their time, and mine at the same time), and taking so long to make this decision ? Finally, one of the review was positive (with few changes that we've done since) but the second one was not really constructive.
