Final Decision for Manuscript

Reviewers are welcome to recommend acceptance or rejection of an article. However, the primary purpose of the review is to provide editors with the analytical argument to help them reach a decision. Therefore, if we have decided against a negative or positive recommendation of a reviewer, it does not imply in any way our lack of confidence in the reviewer's opinion or disregard for the reviewer’s expertise. It is likely that the other reviewers may have expressed opposite views and, therefore, quite often, we have to base our decisions on conflicting reports, one way or the other.
