Latest review

First review round: 6.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Review was prompt and the quality of the review feedback was good. However, the journal advised that the article be substantially revised and resubmitted to a different (new) journal instead. It appeared to be simultaneously a rejection from this particular journal, and an invitation to revise and resubmit to a different one, with no explanation of why (or if) this alternative journal was more appropriate, if indeed that was why the decision was made in this way.
