Biomacromolecules n/a n/a 6.0
n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: Paper was rejected by the editor on the grounds that it was 'out of scope of this journal'. I was surprised by this; the article was on a topic that the journal publishes on regularly. They recommended that we transfer the manuscript to a journal of the ACS Applied series, which we declined, as our article had little to do with the subject of that journal.
Biomacromolecules n/a n/a 5.0
n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: I was appalled with the lack of review before reject at the journal. When I appealled the rejection-without-review I received this comment:

"Thank you for your emails. This is to inform you that you have not received a response to your email because Prof. Albertsson is out of the office traveling this week and will be back next week.

It seems that the editor did not reject the article, her editorial assistant did, on the basis that " this is an extended investigation of your earlier work"! This type of unsubstantiated rejection that you sent us calls the entire review process into question.
