Motivation: As per my knowledge, the majority number of review reports are positive then they are willing to publish. But in this case, the editor is claiming that they need all (in my case 3 review reports) reviewers should give positive (instead of majority reports) to proceed further for the acceptance of the work to publish.
It is very strange!!!!!
