Motivation: "I regret that on this occasion your work was considered to be more appropriate for a general dental journal being more clinically oriented and I have, therefore, to reject it."

Motivation: I understand where one of the reviewers was coming from (the one who was most dissatisfied with our revisions) but I also felt that we'd done a good job explaining in our revision why we disagreed with the fundamental critique and request for eliminating a portion of our paper.

Motivation: I think it has a good editorial board. Because they have carefully reviewed the reviewers' comments and have seen the potential of my manuscript after the first decision. So they gave me another change by requesting a major revision. In addition, this journal accepts Latex format as the recommended one which is a good point since Latex compilers are Open Source and free to be used by everyone.
