Motivation: There was only one review report after 3 months.
No comments from the editor.
The review report completely missed the category of the submitted article and provided wrong judgement. The editor was not the same specialty.
to summarize, very bad review process, while the article was accepted afterwards by another journal.

Motivation: The review process for this journal was extremely long and one of the longest I ever experienced.
After such long period, the article was rejected by opinion of 2 reviewers which all together included a total of 5 sentences.
One reviewer even suggested revision of the article and provided some compliments.
But the other reviewer has copy-pasted limitations of the study and, even more, rejected on the basis that part of the study was not demonstrated - which was actually presented in both Tables and Text!
Finally, the editor who rejected the article is coming from another specialty and completely different area of expertise.
In summary, I am not considering this journal for future submissions anymore, while before impact factor went up - it was completely different experience.
