I submitted my manuscript to a journal in November 2017. One month later, the status changed to “Reviewer selection,” and there has been no progress since then. I have inquired thrice as of today, but each time the editor just replied that “we are currently searching for a reviewer”. I have heard that it takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks on an average to find a reviewer, but I have waited for 6 months. Would this situation be considered as a sufficient reason for manuscript withdrawal?
