Comments
  ·  Overall quality rating: 1 / 5  ·  Recommendation: 1 / 5
I have written this review not to vent but to warn other potential contributors of what they might expect from this journal. The action editor kept my manuscript for a year and sent it to *three* sets of reviewers. He offered *no* comments in the first round of reviews (other than "I agree with the reviewers") but then ultimately rejected the manuscript. The reviewers offered many constructive and mostly positive suggestions, and I have appreciated their useful feedback that has helped me improve the manuscript. The action editor, in contrast, was indecisive and ultimately dropped the ball. I would never consider submitting to this journal again, which is a shame, as it would have been the best fit for this particular manuscript.
