Why would your supervisor want you to fail? It won't look good on his record.
I am not entirely sure why you are pinning this on nationality!
Perfectly normal for supervisor to talk to examiners before viva- they are possibly friends. Even if he knew you were going to get R&R, what did you want him to do?
Approaching someone unannounced so you can be sarcastic will not help you.
Do you have the data? If you do, what did you say in your project plan?
If you don't have data, what data are you expecting and how does this fit with your research question?
what have other people in your field done?
options include: meta-analysis, narrative analysis, realist, or a multitude of other approaches.
Irrespective of what it means... You can't control the process so don"t worry.
The terminology may be different between publishers/ systems.
Generally, editorial staff will look at it first to ensure it is formatted correctly.
It will then go,to an editor, who will decide if it is worth sending out for peer review. This is probably what 'under review' meant.
Reviewers assigned means that peer reviewers have been nominated and accepted. People may decline to review for many reasons - eg they are going on holiday. Peer reviewers do it in there own time, often last thing at night so it can take some time to complete. I usually have a quick,read when I receive the invitation. If it is very straightforward (obvious accept or reject), i will do it there and then, else it goes to the bottom of a list.
