Motivation: I received a positive feedback from the editors and I took them into account.
Drawn back before first editorial decision after 364.8 weeks
Motivation: The entire process was a nightmare. The paper has to be sent to a member of the editorial board. I did not get any acknowledgment that my paper was received, so I sent a kind request to inquire about it. This time I got my acknowledgment. However I did not hear anything from the journal for almost one year. I finally decided to contact the editorial member to whom I sent the paper, at least twice, but I did not get any reply. After 1 year I gave up and sent the paper to another journal, which was also quite slow. As a result, the paper took 3 years from the date it was finished to the date it was published.
