Latest review Show all reviews

First review round: 2.4 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
Overall quality of reviews and journal submission system is excellent. Editor was not a subject area expert and deferred to nitpicking of reviewers too much, requiring multiple rounds of review that could have been more efficiently handled.
