First review round: 7.0 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
Quick turnaround compared to other journals in the field, particularly considering the allowed length of the ms (up to 10k words). Handling editor didn't just forward the reviews as is sometimes the case, but had clearly read both the ms and the reviews and pointed out which suggestions to prioritise. Handling editor was also quick to respond to a follow-up question of mine.
