Motivation: The editor and reviewers had great insights into the study and provided constructive comments to help craft the manuscript that will benefit the audience. Also, the timeframe for the manuscript revision is sufficient (90 days for major revision and 30 days for minor revision) to reorganize the manuscript in a good shape. I strongly recommend those who are interested in qualitative research to submit their work in this journal.

Rejected
Motivation: Review was prompt and the quality of the review feedback was good. However, the journal advised that the article be substantially revised and resubmitted to a different (new) journal instead. It appeared to be simultaneously a rejection from this particular journal, and an invitation to revise and resubmit to a different one, with no explanation of why (or if) this alternative journal was more appropriate, if indeed that was why the decision was made in this way.

Rejected
Motivation: From the first review 2 out of 3 reviewers gave very positive comments, but the 2 very positive review reports were ignored and it was sent out for a second review with the one negative reviewer again, and another reviewer.
