Motivation: Reviews were generally excellent, and one included a detailed replication on another dataset using our code. Decision was a bit slow on the second round given that the revisions we made were relatively minor (~3 months and with some prompting of the editor). The editor was a little bit under-opinionated and didn't give much guidance on which of the reviewers' comments – some of which were quite radical – would be considered vital for acceptance. Editor was very quick in the final round.

Motivation: The main reason for rejection given by the editor was that the manuscript primarly considered a validation study, and that BRM tends not to publish validation studies.
