Motivation: The first round of reviews was good and greatly improved the paper. The second round of reviews was also helpful. After an initial long wait for the first decision the process got a lot speedier. However, I felt that one reviewer and one of the editors were asking me to re-frame results in a way that was not supported by evidence, which took a number of minor revisions and rebuttal letters to agree on.

Motivation: The review process took too long because the journal could not find adequate reviewers. The reviewer comments were helpful but it appeared that they were not specialist reviewers either. The decision following re submission was very fast.

Motivation: The reviewers' remarks were easy to address. When we asked the editor to reconsider, she stated the one of variable represents oversimplification of the issue. It was something we could not change by re-writing. This type of concerns should make the editor to reject the paper from the start and not to make us wait for 4 month.
