|Motivation: We got a desk-reject decision after less than three weeks. The editor considered that the paper was not a strong fit to the journal because the topic of our paper was of current interest to the journal's readers. There were additional comments about the poor quality of English as well as an insufficient engagement in the small business literature.
We only partly understand these criticisms as the main paper we use as a reference, both from the methodological perspective and the theoretical arguments was published in this very journal a few years ago. Additionally, we got no comments about the quality of English by the reviewers during a previous unsucessful submission of this manuscript.
