Motivation: Note that, for this comment (that is my work is already done) Reviewer takes more than 15 months.
Also, when I submitted, my results was new, but due to slow processing and reviewing after 6-7 months of my submission similar results to those I submitted was published by another journal ( more reputed than this journal).

Motivation: The journal took far too long to review the manuscript. I wrote after 6 months to enquire about the delay and was told that two reviewers had agreed to review the manuscript, that one review had been submitted and the other would be submitted imminently. Four months later (i.e. 10 months post-submission), I received a rejection letter on the basis of only one review.

Motivation: I feel this a generally positive experience. The turnaround time was decent. There were one or two comments that I felt stemmed from not having read the MS carefully, but overall the comments were well-observed and helped me to improve the manuscript a great deal. They were quite strict on the word count.

Motivation: In terms of argumentation provided the journal scored a good mark. The conclusion made, namely to not ask for a revision for new submission but reject the manuscript, stood at certain odds with the substantive, mostly constructive and valuable dialogue entered with the manuscript by the reviewers, with various pointers for direct improvement. Finally the time, at 9 months, taken for the review may be considered rather lengthy, even if recognition is given to the difficulties many journals face with securing relevant reviewers. Hence an overall mark of 6.
