Latest review

First review round: 13.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The manuscript was initially rejected because I suggested the "wrong" editor, so I resubmitted the manuscript immediately. Because of this, time was added to the review process. I also question the qualifications of the reviewers. The issues that they raised were not major and could have been resolved with some simple feedback to the reviewers or the addition of a sentence or two in the manuscript. Clearly they were unfamiliar with the type of data I used. Overall, I found the handling of the manuscript unprofessional and I would not recommend this journal.
