Latest review

First review round: 18.3 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Very long waiting time for the process, no feedback during 4 months, no update on the platform. It is impossible to contact the editor directly when this kind of problem is present (only the use of the platform). A final decision that did not take into consideration at all the reviewers comments that were all very nice, positive, and encouraging. We asked for an explanation to the editor since the decision was at the opposite of the reviewers comments but the editor never replied to us.... = a waste of 5 months during this process that it is really problematic in view of the high competition in the field ! No positive experiences during the process.
