Latest review Show all reviews

First review round: 20.1 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
Reviews were constructive and useful and I really like the journal. My only wish was that the initial review process would be a lot quicker. It took 20 weeks to hear back after the first submission. This is for graduate students and postdocs too long, and not desirable for those for whom publication pressure is not that high either.
