|Motivation: Very professional and understandable rejection. Nature Energy has an extremely high impact factor, thus also high expectations. The rejection was informed very fast, which allowed me to directly resubmit the paper to another journal.|
|Motivation: The first round of review was already frustrating. One of the reviewer gave good feedback with a lot of thoughts on improvement and also some more tricky questions that we addressed in the next version of the manuscript. The other reviewer gave no feedback, just an "outright reject" without any reasoning. When resubmitting the manuscript, we asked for another reviewer as it was obvious that the second reviewer just wanted to block the publication in general. The editor refused to search for another reviewer and said we should "convince" him/her.
After another two months without any reply from the second reviewer (the first one accepted the manuscript in its revised version) we decided to withdraw the manuscript and resubmit it to another journal. It was accepted there after 6 weeks with 7 (!) really positive reviewer feedbacks. We will never submit anything to Nature Energy again.
