Motivation: I submitted a manuscript on September 26, 2014. As I write today on October 25, 2016, I have not yet received the first round of reviews. Numerous emails to editor, sent out on an average after three months intervals, have been unanswered. Desperate emails to the associate editors have been unanswered. I even contacted elsevier and they have responded that they have contacted the editor. Apart from that nothing has moved. There is not even an option to withdraw the manuscript from the online portal. This is highly unprofessional and unethical on the part of the editor and the journal.
