Please find below the expanded review of the original senior referee and the brief message from one of the "fresh" referees (see my December email) whose full report I still await.
The other of the fresh referees wrote some time ago to say he had been abroad and did I still need him to referee your paper. I said he need not do so, since I already had negative responses from two prominent scholars.
The subsequent delay, for which I apologise, has been caused by my waiting for the outstanding full report. However, since the recommendation of the reviewer concerned is not in doubt, and you certainly deserve a clear answer from me, you may take this as the on- record decision you ask for:
On the basis of the long report and brief message below, JCS is not accepting your paper "The Dimensions of Conscious Experience: A Quantitative Analysis" for publication.
