Motivation: Worst journal and editorial team. They rejected my manuscript after two month because they found similarity with another paper: the preprint version of the same manuscript at arxiv!!! They didn't realize this even though it was allowed in Guide For Authors.

Motivation: I contacted the associate editor 5 times and the editor-in-chief twice, during the review process, but I didn't get a response. The peer-review process and quality were poor and irresponsible.

Rejected
Motivation: The editor-in-chief adds reviewers until she believes she can justify the rejection that she has already decided on beforehand. The decision to reject was made even though almost all reviewers accepted the changes. I contacted the editor-in-chief twice, once during the review process and once after, but I didn't get a response on either occasion.
