Latest review

First review round: 13.0 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

The process for submission was smooth, and early communication with journal assistants was helpful. The eventual reviews spanned a range from accept to revise to reject. The final decision made was rejection, but the reject opinion showed signs of careless reading the submission (in particular, recommending the inclusion of scholarship already cited at multiple points in the submission). This was pointed out to the Editors following the reject decision, in an email that also thanked other reviewers for their careful and constructive feedback. There was no reply from the Editors.
