Motivation: I submit this paper for a special issue. First, the abstract was accepted and we were invited to submit the whole paper. After 3 months received one single comment and the same in the second round of reviews. Finally, in the third round of review, the paper was rejected based on three short comments from one reviewer. The argument of the reviewer was that the case study was not theoretically motivated and the methodology was not novel. Both arguments could have been made one year before during the abstract review. In addition, the reviewer, I think, clearly did not understand the methodology. Editors may ensure that the reviewer will have the knowledge to assess the paper. I won't submit again to this journal, the entire process is unprofessional and with no respect for the time and effort invested.
