Motivation: Manuscript has too many figures and tables was given as the main reason for rejection, which leads me to believe this journal is interested only in publishing abstract and vague articles with no focus on scientific detail or rigour. Which is not surprising, given they have had retract a large number of previous papers with erroneous results and data. Not a recommended journal.

Motivation: Unfair consideration by the Assistant Editor whose reasons for rejection were: (1) "the initial scrutiny of your manuscript has revealed that your manuscript has a very limited scope for our journal", which was quite surprising, because the journal has specific rubric on the issue; (2) "it has not been formatted properly according to author's guidelines", which was the height because the manuscript was prepared strictly in accordance with the guidelines point by point.
