Rejected 2020
Motivation: Really fast process and high-quality reviews. They do not strongly argue rejection, but this journal receives many manuscripts, and the editorial decision is reasonable. I recommend to submit here and I will do it again in the future.

(very good)
Rejected 2019
Motivation: The process took a bit longer than expected and was not easy to track, but the quality of the reviews made the wait worthwhile. Although the reviews did not recommend rejection per se, the paper was rejected. No reason was specified, but the range of suggested revisions in the reviews was probably too large for the journal to bother with "revise and resubmit" given its generally low acceptance rate. Under the circumstances, the decision seemed fair.

Rejected 2018
Motivation: We failed to communicate our results well in this paper, and received rather confusing reports from the reviewers. That's not going to cut it with a journal like ESR.

Motivation: Unlike our previous experience, the review process was swift, and we had (I believe) 7 different reviewers who were generally very positive and very constructive. I believe the paper did end up being much better due to the review process.
