Latest review Show all reviews

First review round: 10.1 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
The review process is quite long. The editor decided to send out the manuscript for review after two weeks upon initial submission. We received the comments from reviewers 8 weeks later. It seems that the whole process is time consuming and the manuscript tracking system is clumsy.
