Latest review Show all reviews

First review round: 8.3 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
An appeal with Divisional Associate Editor was filed, given unsubstantiated declination by the Editor, that conflicted with recommendations of the reviewers. It too resulted in a declination. Communication read like a standard template.
