Motivation: both refere comments were biased towards another group studying similar things. referes somehow failed (or acted in this way) to see the novelty of the presented data.
I like overall system that Jneurosci provides, but biased reviews killed the paper.

Accepted 2018
Motivation: Overall acceptance rate and editorial rejection rate is about 30% and 25%, respectively. In the case of revision, "Your revision must include..." or "Your resubmission must include..." will be described. In former case, it is rather positive, however, in latter case, there is a risk for rejection after review.

In recent days, competitive neuroscience journals such as eLife, Nature Communications, Scientific reports were released and the impact factor of JNeurosci was declined. However, a journal that performs fair pair review is still JNeurosci.

Motivation: A third reviewer was requested for the review after 4 weeks of submission. The first reviewer liked the paper a lot, considering it novel and important without major issues. The second reviewer stated that the paper is not suitable for the journal without providing any scientific suggestions.

Motivation: After the first rejection (missing control group), the paper was completely submitted again. Three reviewer made their comments and suggestions. All critics were both, fair and very constructive. After a first revision (meanwhile two reviewer were satifed), the editors asked for a minor revision. Done. The paper was accepted.

Rejected 2018
Motivation: The reviewers did not appear to be experts on the topic. The comments were not at all harsh, but showed lack of knowledge of both the state of the art and the terminology used in the field.

I also did not really appreciate the suggestion to revise the manuscript and send it to their much more expensive "sister" journal.

Motivation: Everything went very quickly and efficiently with this Journal of Neuroscience review process. In a way, you somewhat expect this, given that you pay to submit to this journal.
