Motivation: Desk rejection for being out of scope. However, the journal’s webpage and the Elsevier journal finder suggested otherwise.
Motivation: After the first round, the article had a status of completion of the review for 3 months. We contacted the journal manager twice. Then we wrote to the editor-in-chief and received the article for revision in 1 hour.
Motivation: The process was quite slow. The first review round took over half a year which is way too long. The editor had a good touch and the reviewers were knowledgeable.
