Rejected 2020
Motivation: Although I have seen more careful/detailed referee scores, the rejection of the submission is not my main issue with the review process. After submitting the manuscript, I did not hear back from the journal for more than half a year. I had to send several reminders (after 7 months, 9 months and 12 months) before I received a decision letter after almost 13 months. Even though I did recieve replies to these reminders from the managing editor, the process was very frustrating.

Rejected 2015
Motivation: It took more than a year to get reports from reviewers, one of which was only of few lines; When I talked to some colleagues about it, they laughed and said this is not unusual from this journal. I strongly advice against submitting a paper to it.

Accepted 2011
Motivation: I got referees' report within 8 months and the decision to publish by four more months (rather two months after my submission of the revised version) -within 5 months it was available online as advance access and by next 5 months it was published
