Post on October 31, 2020. On April 12, 2021, I received feedback from two external reviewers asking me to revise the article. On April 12, the editor emailed me asking for revisions, with a deadline of 21 days. However, on April 21, my article was unexpectedly rejected without any explanation. It was quite arbitrary to reject it without giving me a chance to make the revisions. I hadn't even made the revisions yet, and it wasted a lot of my effort. I emailed the editor a week later to inquire about the status, but both the editor and the journal ignored my emails. Recently, I discovered that the reputation of the journal under Frontiers is not good. Many authors have experienced delays, with the editor claiming they couldn't find reviewers and asking authors to recommend their own. Furthermore, they even requested me to cite and send them nine articles, which is quite disgusting.
I don't have any particular high aspirations. I was recommended to submit to this magazine by someone else. I waited for almost three months before the reviewer replied to my message. The first reviewer accepted it right away, while the second reviewer provided more than forty suggestions, including spelling errors, but overall it was constructive. After making revisions within 14 days, it was accepted in less than a week. Oh well, I'm just a mediocre student with no aspirations, as long as it's accepted.
