Motivation: The review process was extremely slow and communication with the editors was not fluid.
Social Science Quarterly Drawn back before first editorial decision after 286 days Drawn back
Motivation: The editor failed to find reviewers for this paper. This is quite different from my previous experience with the same journal (and editor), and odd given that the journal recently published an article on a similar topic, and other journals where we tried before did not have this problem. For various reasons we thought that SSQ would be most suited to reach the audience we targeted with this paper, but it did not happen.

Motivation: There were several delays in getting the initial reviews. Once we got past that, things progressed well until the article was delayed in production due to issues with the publisher.

Motivation: One useful and constructive review plus comments from the editor who has clearly read the paper, too. The paper was conditionally accepted after the first round.
