- What are the authors trying to answer? What are the research questions?
- Who are the participants, and what do we know about them?

- The three points above should somehow connect: the participants should have the correct profile to respond to the instruments, which in turn should relate directly to the research questions.
Once you have analyzed the possible reasons for rejection, please post your thoughts below.
