Rejected 2019
Motivation:
We fruitlessly waited about 4 weeks between time referees concluded their reports and the editor Final decision. However, the Editor simply reported reviewers' reports without any personal evaluation of the paper. Reviewers' reports were quite short (one made by few lines)

Motivation: I have submitted an article for a special issue. After almost two months, I have received desk rejection without any comments apart from a note that they were overwhelmed with the number of submissions.

n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.) 2017
Motivation: The decision to reject the manuscript related largely to the rather under-developed theoretical contribution within the field of the assessed content. The editor considered the empirical material as strong and to be commended. As there was little extension and development of existing sociological theories and concepts which is what would be needed to progress further through the WES review process, the editor recommended to submit the paper to a different journal.
