How did "submitting to multiple journals" become a moral issue? It is clearly an oppressive clause imposed by the editorial department. Why is it not considered a moral issue to apply to multiple schools for admission?
The editor made a wrong decision, the chief editor made a wrong decision, and the original judgment must be upheld, which is the practice of international journals. Which of these moral issues is more serious, the one of submitting to multiple journals or the one in the editorial department? Should the academic community intervene in the moral issues of the editorial department?
The initial review system of the editorial department is a bad one, and the immediate rejection is based on the level of the author's affiliation.
Science is about questioning, and some journals openly declare in their guidelines that they will not review the commonly accepted theories, claiming it is too time-consuming. What is your journal for? Can it only sing praises? ScienceNature refers innovative articles to specialized journals, but specialized journals have the same taste as ScienceNature.
Truly innovative articles are not dared to be reviewed by both ScienceNatureCell and specialized journals. The thinking of top journals is directly inherited by specialized journals.
You can immediately reject a perpetual motion machine manuscript because you understand thermodynamics.
There was a recent online debate about a manuscript questioning relativity. Regardless of right or wrong, as an editor, you do not have the qualification to immediately reject it based on our common belief in relativity. Because you do not understand relativity. The rejection should be made by someone who understands relativity, and you need to make the author convinced.

When submitting, you can only choose from six major directions, and even during the review process, reviewers may question the suitability of the direction and require a detailed explanation. The first review was done quickly, with major revisions requested. There were three reviewers, two giving positive feedback, and one saying the direction was not quite appropriate and there were content issues, so additional experiments and analysis explanations were added. The second review had no major issues and was accepted in about a week.
