The reviewer recommendations are visible on the reviews and one reviewer recommended an R&R and one recommended a reject. I feel a tad raw because the reviewer that recommended provided a *lengthy* (good) review, but didn't say much of anything specific that should prevent the article's publication. It was the editor's final call and in his letter to me he wrote "he journal is becoming more and more competitive and while your study contributes some insight, the contributions are not novel enough to justify inclusion at this time." So I guess that it's it. There wasn't much wrong with the study, it just wasn't fancy enough I suppose...
