Dear Prof. Escudé,

 

Thank you for your submission. I consulted our Editors after receiving your manuscript and I'm afraid they have decided not to send your paper out for review. Your manuscript is discussing two papers which were published a while ago and as we are experiencing a backlog of papers waiting to be published we would not be able to publish your paper within a framework which would appreciate the discussion of this paper.

 

Sincerely,

Paola Raunio
