Motivation: The review process at this journal was frustrating. First, we haven't heard back from the journal for more than 6 months. When we contacted the journal, we were told that our manuscript has not been sent out to reviewers yet because they were not able to identify suitable reviewers (note: the paper is not on a rare, very specific topic), and asked if we can suggest potential reviewers. We did. After which were told that they would get back to us once the reviews are in in about 2 months. They never did. After writing another email to the journal and waiting for a reply for several weeks, we were notified that the reviewers we had suggested were dropped from their system because the reviewers did not submit a review within the given time (1 month?). At that point our manuscript had been with JOPR for more than 10 months but had not been reviewed yet. We requested to withdraw our paper from JOPR so we could submit it elsewhere, but haven't heard back from the journal office. We wrote several emails asking to withdraw the manuscript, to which they finally reacted, a month later. All in all, our manuscript has stayed with JOPR for a year, with no outcome at all.
