Motivation: The "Initial Quality Control" usually takes 4-5 days, which is quite slow. Then the EIC gives a rapid rejection decision (1 day later) without external review for considering novelty. Why not EIC directly give a decision? I guess the "Initial Quality Control" is just for checking the format and data policies. Why so long!..............................! Hope for an improvement!

Motivation: It took a while, but I got good reviews that were very helpful. I would like to point out, however, that the turnaround time listed on the GRL website is based on manipulation of the submission times. My manuscript required only minor revision (took me less than one day), but the journal demanded that I fully resubmitted the revisions, meaning that the clock was reset. Consequently, the it appears on the website that it took only 8 weeks from submission to the published paper appearing online.
