I voted for an article, and the external review was conducted for a month. The editor and two judges evaluated the innovation very well, but both judges asked nearly ten questions. It asked for a few small experiments and a large number of animal experiments. After carefully answering and struggling with the animal experiment questions, one judge was very satisfied, and the other judge was entangled in animal experiments. The magazine rejected the manuscript and encouraged to submit it after completing the animal experiment. However, it was too late to graduate and had to gritted his teeth and gave up. However, the opinions given by the judges are really pertinent. If you have enough time, you can still consider these *** *Talk about it.

This is the first time in my life to post sci. The approximate time is as follows: received:11-13, enter the under review a few days after submission, if there is no change within a week, it will enter the first review stage. It will last about a month, and the editorial department will give it within 30 days. You write back to inform the review progress. The editorial department is really responsible. They will send a letter to the review experts and try to finish the review within one month. Due to my personal reasons, I didn’t pay attention to my email address. In about 30 days, the editorial department replied that it needed to upload the original results of a figure and then inform the review results. Due to my personal reasons, I mistakenly thought it was spam. The editorial department urged several times. Thanks again for the patience of the editorial department. minor revise: 12-22. The minor repairs basically did not make up the experiment. They were all format requirements. Once again, note that the format requirements of this magazine are extremely strict and perverted, with only dozens of pages of format comments. resubmit: 1-3, 4th and 5th are weekends, the result accept: 1-6. This wave of operations stunned me. I also told the editor that I needed this article urgently, but it turned out to be too fast. Thanks again to the editor greatly. How do I say the hit rate of submissions, I voted once, and it was 100%, hey, but the official rate is 15%, but the editor is really good, and the foreigner's tone is very gentle and humble in the communication process, like a peer In addition, the serious attitude of foreigners made me admire me. Their modification of my article word by word moved me.

The Associate editor said "whilst there is some interest in how this work has been done, the three reviewers had varying views but on overall the feeling was 1. the work would not change the overall view of this area given recent FDA pronoucements and 2. that the statistical aspects were potential problematic in places. Overall, taking all things into consideration, the paper would not be currently competitive against other papers submitted to the journal." , , We believe that when reviewers flag methodological concerns it is a concerning if editors make the inference that there are potentially problematic statistical issues without feedback from the authors - reviewers may not necessarily be as well versed in the methods as the authors and thus this situation reflects editors simply acting as gate keepers.

Overall: not enough editorial filtering. , One of the reviewers flagged a statistical query, which is what got a statistical reviewer involved. The first review was easy enough to address, requiring clarifications and some additional statistical analyses to rule out confounding (which we were able to do). The second, third and fourth rounds were only with the statistical reviewer as the others were satisfied with the first response. I understand that statistical reviewers are important in population-level studies, but there has to be some editorial sense-checking of the comments coming in. They cannot allow comments that contradict previous suggestions and just leave the authors to go back and forth catering to every whim and fancy. We had to deal with one comment that was so bizarre, that it required us to produce a two-page long table that added nothing to the material presented in the manuscript, and is unlike anything published in the field. , However, another issue is the copy-editing and house style of the journal. There are way too many deviations from SI systems, and these all become the author's problem to incorporate. It is especially challenging for graphing, where restrictions by colour palette, and the unique method of writing units mean that every graph required special formatting syntax. Additionally, we had so many conflicting comments from the copy editors in subsequent reviews: change LDL Cholesterol to LDL-cholesterol and then change LDL-cholesterol to LDLc. , A journal need only bother with formatting figures down to colour schemes etc once they have accepted a manuscript, so long as the figures are legible and clear. Starting from the first revision to the third we were saddled with minor formatting requests, that could easily have all been pooled at the end. It would also be helpful if journals in general gave dpi requirements for grayscale and coloured images instead of simply saying what is sent across was inadequate.
