|Motivation: We were very disappointed in the review process of this journal. The quality of the review process and handling was poor and we are having difficulty understanding why there is such a long delay in obtaining feedback about our rebuttal to the review of our manuscript.
They rejected our first draft and then we added some details and we enhanced the manuscript by performing more in-depth analyses then we submitted our response to the reviewer and it has to wait 4 months before we hear back from them.
The response was even more shocking: ' For some reason, unknown to me, the letter informing you of the decision (reject without review) was not sent, despite being drafted'.
We would have appreciated knowing the plans and the expected timing.
