First review round: 13.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Reviewers were competent and provided useful feedback. Time handling of the manuscript was definitely reasonable. Still, the manuscript was rejected based only on some critiques by one of the two reviewers which could have been answered. The other reviewer suggested acceptance with very minor revisions. Also, the editor was clearly not a specialist in the domain, despite the fact that the editorial board of the journal includes prominent scholars in the specific field of the article.
