Latest review

First review round: 19.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
It takes 6 months to get the 1st review comments. Two reviewers' comments are of high quality but polarized, one suggesting minor revision and find it very interesting, while the other points out a few critics on the theory and methods, which can all be easily solved by revision. Unfortunately, the editors did not grant a revising or an opportunity for explanation. It takes quite long and should have already been in R&R if in other journals.
