Rejected 2016
Motivation: The review process took so long although the paper was a short communication type. The editor made a decision based on just one of the three reviewers' views and opinions that were not supported by any reference. I think the editors might want to consider more carefully the obvious "conflict of interest" raised by some reviewers before making the final decision.

Motivation: Rejected immediately due to not broad enough appeal, but the process was quick so we didn't have to wait to long. Offered the option to transfer our paper to another journal within the Nature Publishing Group (Scientific Reports). Overall a smooth and efficient system, though the outcome was not what we hoped.

Motivation: The review process was fair and had high scientific quality, I would recommend this journal to others. However I have to say that the online manuscript tracking system is a bit clumsy and doesn't provide much information.
