Latest review

First review round: 10.4 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
I received the decision relatively quickly. 2 of the reviews were very balanced and helpful, but one seemed like they did not read the manuscript very closely. The editor also offered encouraging feedback on the paper even though it was a rejection.
