Rejected
Motivation: The editor handled the paper with a great deal of subjectivity, ignored the external review process and rejected the paper after more than 2 years. The editor kept requesting minor changes, particularly strengthening a political stance on country, he feels it should be criticized. Then without clear reasons, the editor rejected the paper citing changed review criteria (after 2 years and acceptance by reviewers). This was not objective nor professional. It is really the most unfair process I experienced in my whole career.

Motivation: Got good reviews that provided good direction for revising the manuscript. The reviews I got after the revision reflected more the personal beliefs of the editor and his hand-selected new reviewers than anything objective. I will never submit anything to this journal again.
