Rejected
Motivation: The reviews we received were quite positive and constructive, but the editor rejected the manuscript anyway.

n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: I was very disappointed that a little over 2 months after submitting my paper, I heard that it had not been sent out for review because of the standard reasons "including the overall fit of the paper for AIDS and Behavior, journal priorities, number of papers awaiting assignment to an issue, as well the methods and results of the study." Normally, I would expect to hear this type of feedback within a week, so that I may submit elsewhere in an efficient manner. This was very disheartening. If a journal sits on a paper for so long, I would at least expect some reviews in return.

Rejected
Motivation: The journal sat on my paper for four months before it was rejected. Several times I attempted to contact the editor for an update without success. Finally, after over two months of silence, I received an email saying the following:

"I'm sorry. I'm a bit behind on decisions. I hope to get caught up soon. Thanks for letting me know.
Seth"

This email was unhelpful. The journal then sat on my paper for another two months before rejecting it for reasons I do not understand, given the reviewers seemed to enjoy it and their critical feedback was mild.
