Latest review

First review round: 24.9 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
Review process was incredibly slow. Reviews were of good quality. However, reviews were very positive, so the decision to reject was somewhat confusing. Editor justified decision by alluding to fit with the broader focus of the journal.
