Motivation: NAR receives far more manuscripts than it can consider for publication, and therefore all submissions are subjected to preliminary review by Executive Editors to assess their suitability for the journal. Detailed peer reviews are then sought for only a fraction of the manuscripts submitted. All manuscripts are evaluated relative to other recent submissions. In this case, I appreciate the effort that went into your research and the preparation of this manuscript. However, NAR prioritizes studies that focus on obtaining deep insights into molecular mechanism. Your manuscript has a broad focus and is primarily descriptive, making it more appropriate for a journal with a different specialization.

We hope that you are able to find a more suitable journal in which to publish your article.

Motivation: We have been happy with the reviewers comments, which was not only quick but also extremely relevant. It seemed that all 3 reviewers had knowledge on the experimental aspect and data analysis work too. The editorial decision was prompt and efficient. We have also been satisfied with the production and proofreading team. Our paper was online in three weeks after acceptance. Apart from the HEAVY open access fee that is charged, our overall experience with NAR has been positive and we are happy to have our paper published in such a reputed journal.
