Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
Although the paper presented a systemic modelling work with R-programmed Morris sensitivity analysis that could be useful for other models, the decision was "your paper is a bit too narrowly focused and hence doesn't fit within the scope of the journal". Such a decision came after 1.5 months, which is quite long given that no further constructive comment was provided.
