Motivation: Initial submission was fine - took them a while until we heard back but not too bad. First round of reviews was fine too, criticisms were appropriately formulated. After revising, it took them quite a long time to give us an update which was the "fear period" it won't be accepted after all the effort (which it then did fortunately).

Rejected 2018
Motivation: After submission, it took about 6 weeks until the editor responded and sent the manuscript for external review. Then it took another 11 weeks until they got comments back from only one reviewer after we emailed the editor several times. This extremely slow handling of the manuscript is just irresponsible and lack of efficiency.

Motivation: After 8 weeks of waiting, we started contacting them, and we still had to email and call them multiple times over the next couple weeks to get an answer.
