Latest review

First review round: 34.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

After 8 months of not receiving any response from the journal, we contacted them and they claimed that four of the reviewers had declined to review the paper due to the COVID-19, and only one reviewer had accepted to review the paper. It is interesting that the reviewer had suggested revision(the reviewer's comments were of value, however), but the editors decided to reject the paper and suggested a transfer to another journal of a lower ranking with a very high publication fee. So, they just wasted our time with no outcome!
