Latest review

First review round: 4.0 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

The overall process was really quick. First an initial review was performed to assess the suitability of the manuscript for PRX. This was positive, after which there was another round of reviews. However, there it turned out the paper was not "seminal" enough after all. The review reports were OK and the referees knowledgeable, however one of the referees did not read the manuscript carefully in full.
