Latest review

First review round: 0.0 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

- The reviewer's comments were not very relevant to the topic of the manuscript. There was no discussion on the technical part or scientific gaps in the paper. - We had a high expectation from this journal but the review process is very poor - We did communicate with the editor in chief in advance about the suitability of the topic, however still one reviewer comment about the scope of the manuscript - I believe the review process is not very professional -The article was rejected with not proper explanation
