Motivation: The editorial process was poor, We did not receive any substantial comment about our manuscript, just say that Objective errors in the methods, applications, or interpretations were identified in this manuscript that prevent further consideration.

But it does not show evidence of these methodological flaws, it is only a personal appreciation without scientific foundation

Motivation: A review time of eight weeks is a bit long for a journal that boasts about speed. The reviews were fair, but a bit passive-aggressive.

Motivation: The journal process is so fast, transparent and journal publishes high-quality papers. i have read so many papers of this journals. Normally journal took two weeks as review process but in my case, the English language was not appropriate for a reviewer, so we got the little delay in revision but after English editing, we got acceptance within 1 month. we can see the review progress in real time. I will recommend this journal for all authors.
