Latest review

First review round: 15.0 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The Journal reject my work after 4 months, while 1 reviewer suggest it to be published, and the other one only suggest reject with one sentence that the work does not related to the journal. I do not know, whether really it needs 4 month for the reviewr to understand that the paper does not match with the journal? I'll share the reviewer comments here to see how much the performance of SCHM journal is terible in reviewing the articles: "Reviewer: 1 Comments to the Author No Recommendation is made for this paper. Reviewer: 2 Comments to the Author In this paper, a new method is proposed to evaluate the lifetime seismic risk of typical buildings equipped with different passive vibration control systems under probable mainshock-aftershocks sequences. 5-, 10-, and 15-story intermediate steel moment-resisting frame building models, which are designed optimally with/without passive vibration control systems (hysteretic damping, linear viscous dampingh, and base isolation systems) are subjected to earthquake scenarios and responses of buildings and their cumulative losses are calculated considering various damage types such as structural, non-structural, and content-related. Finally, risk of different building alternatives are estimated by using the Monte-Carlo simulation method. It is shown that the application of each of the considered vibration control devices leads to reduction in lifetime losses and neglecting aftershocks' effects results in underestimation of the lifetime risk by about 27~57% below the expected value. This paper is well written and well organized. It evaluates the subject from a wide perspective. The figures look professional. The literature review is adequate. Reviewer 3 Comments to the author The submission is focused on Earthquake Engineering, rather than on the control aspects, where nothing innovative is presented. This is confirmed by the absence of this journal in the reference list."
