Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

2 months for desk rejection is unacceptable and very disrespectful. After 2 months without news, I sent a e-mail asking for updates about my manuscript, and then received the desk rejection, with the reason that it was not given high priority during initial assessment.
Good process
