. There was no information on the journal's website related to author's guidelines for submission . After submission, the editor replied that the manuscript did not follow the journal's guidelines, sending a link to the journal's website where no information could be found on guidelines for submission. . Upon writing back to the editor, the editor sends by email the submission guidelines. We had to largely reformat the manuscript before submitting again. . Six months after the paper was accepted, the editor writes with questions that amount to a new review. . After answering all those questions, and doing new changes on the already accepted manuscript, the editor says that the figures do not match the journal requirement (requirements that could not be found anywhere in the journal's website or in the guidelines sent by email). . After completely reformatting all figures, the editor asks for further "cosmetic" changes in one figure. We refuse to perform those changes because the figure would not represent reality any longer. The editor accepts our explanations. . Three months after doing the required changes and resubmitting, the paper is published online without a full reference. . Three months after being published online without a full reference, the paper is assigned to a volume and issue within the journal and a full reference is given.
