Motivation: After 12 weeks I contacted the editor to check on the manuscript's progress. Received immediate answer from the editor and 2 weeks after I had the first review.
There were only two reviewers, and both referees had very good comments, although one referee was not very polite.
One week after was accepted.

n/a n/a n/a Rejected (im.)
Motivation: The editor's letter was fair, but I do not fully agree with the reasons of rejection. Limited geographical scope was used as an argument. However, if you check articles in recent issues of the journal, this argument does not hold. I do not have the feeling that my manuscript was sufficiently checked for its fit into the journal. The editor was simply not interested in the topic and deemed it not important enough. I do not think I will try this journal again.

Motivation: Prompt and appropriate response by the Editor, but poor work from the reviewers. Time from first submission to final acceptance (5.5 months) is too long and not really compatible with needs to spread scientific information.
