Motivation: Although the editor stated that the manuscripts was of interest to this journal's community, it was rejected on the grounds of: "We are receiving far more submissions than we can currently publish and therefore have to reject many good papers". This journal has published many similar articles on the same topic (many of which are of lower scientific merit in my opinion). Rejecting a manuscript based on space constraints rather than a sound scientific reason is disappointing.
