Antonio F. G. Sevilla, Alberto Díaz Esteban, José María Lahoz-Bengoechea

This article was published as an open access article in the journal “IEEE Access” in February 2023.

It was originally submitted on December 2021 to the journal “Expert Systems and Applications”, where it went through a first round of reviews. After six months, minor revisions were asked for the article text. They were performed, but for more than six months, the editorial process did not advance. Despite repeated inquiries, the journal and its editors did not respond, so we were forced to withdraw the article and submit it to “IEEE Acess” on November 2022. The pre-print version as submitted on 2021 to “Expert Systems and Applications” can be found online.
