Motivation: The overall review process was not properly managed by the Editor. We submitted two companion papers to the same journal, highlighting, in our letter to the Editor, that they were related to the same topic and suggesting to handle them together. After 3 months, apparently, the Editor was not able to find any reviewer for our manuscripts. After almost 5 months, just one paper was sent to one reviewer. Unfortunately, the reviewer received only the second paper, without any information about the companion one, and he could not evaluate it. The conclusion was that he rejected the paper, while after five months, apparently, the Editor was still looking for a reviewer for the first paper. At the end, we decided to retire both the manuscripts. They were both submitted to another journal (Carbon Balance and Management), which provided a revision, from two reviewers, in three weeks. The first paper is now under publication and the second is under revision, after having recieved the comments from the reviewer.
