Rejected 2019
Motivation: The criticism of both reviewers were constructive and helpful in developing the manuscript further. The review process was short compared to other journals. So I have written a 'thank you' message to the editors, despite the rejection.

Rejected 2016
Motivation: The paper was sent to peer-review and the process took more than 3 months. One of the reviewers provided a sustained feedback which revealed an attentive reading of our paper, highlighting many flaws which we were able to correct thanks to him/her and prepare the paper for further submission to another journal. The second reviewer however was sarcastic and very condescending. He/She provided a two line review stating that the paper had a major methodological flaw which made it unworthy of further comments. When submitting a paper to peer review in a top journal, we expect to get a report based on a objective reading of the paper and not on reviewer's "methodological ideologies". Through the provided report, it was obvious that the reviewer in question did not even read the paper thoroughly and just decided it was unworthy of even considering it.

Motivation: Great experience. Reviews were thorough, informative and fair. Encouragement along the way from the Editor too. A really great experience. JEMS is an exemplar of how the peer review system should work.

Motivation: This was faster than previous experiences with JEMS, and we were given a chance to revise the paper despite one rather critical reviewer. The work we put into the revision paid out, though.

Motivation: In the final decision, the editor referred only to the additional (negative) review, and not at all to the reviews from the first round or our changes to the manuscript.
