Motivation: We managed to satisfy the reviewers pretty quickly, but the editor was relentless in pushing us towards clearer language and making apparent the contribution to the literature more. This was painful, but we ended up with a much better manuscript.

Motivation: It took two month for the editorial review. On the other hand, the comments by the editor and associate editor are extensive, constructive, and will help making the paper better. External reviews are not always up to the standard of the editorial reviews we got.

Motivation: In terms of argumentation provided the journal scored a good mark. The conclusion made, namely to not ask for a revision for new submission but reject the manuscript, stood at certain odds with the substantive, mostly constructive and valuable dialogue entered with the manuscript by the reviewers, with various pointers for direct improvement. Finally the time, at 9 months, taken for the review may be considered rather lengthy, even if recognition is given to the difficulties many journals face with securing relevant reviewers. Hence an overall mark of 6.
