Rejected 2018
Motivation: There was a relatively long delay in receiving the peer review and editorial decision but this was acknowledged and apologised for by the editors. Despite the lengthy time between submission and rejection it did at least go to a reviewer and the comments were very fair and clearly from a topic expert.

Motivation: It took the editor almost 3 weeks to make the decision to reject without review, which I found a bit long, but they apologized for the delay in the decision letter.

Rejected 2017
Motivation: One reviewer was constructive and fair. The second reviewer, however, was no constructive and seems to have not understood the paper. The comments were irrelevant and not substantive.

Accepted 2015
Motivation: The reviewing process was relatively swift. However, the paper was 'pending editorial decision' for at least three months. Considering that both reviewers recommended publication and very minor corrections the whole process could have been much faster.
