Motivation: The review process took 17 months. The reviewers had no expertise in the relevant theory or methods. When I tried to contact the editorial office to get an update on the status of our submission, I got no response. (Efforts to contact the journal included 6 attempts directed at the editor and managing editor, and included both email and telephone messages.)
