Summary of paper in a few sentences (summary of changes and improvements for
second round reviews):
The authors made some efforts to improve the presentation of tables and figures. The interpretation of the results has also been strengthened slightly. The contribution of the study to the existing literature still appears to be very modest.
Reasons to accept:
- The topic is interesting and relevant in the current business environment.
- The study makes a good attempt to use online marketplace data, an approach which can potentially generate further research effort in exploring various use of such type of data.
- The authors provide very detailed data extraction and processing steps which would allow future researchers to replicate the study in different settings.
Reasons to reject:
Modest contribution of the study to the existing knowledge. It appears that the revision presented in this version is minimum.
Unfortunately, some typographical and grammatical errors appeared in the first version are still left uncorrected in the revision. A thorough round of proof-reading will be required before the paper can be published online.
