First review round: 5.1 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Overall review process was fair. Reviewers were also fair and asked nice questions, this helped us to improve our manuscript quality. Please remember Scientific Reports is Nature's journal and so, the manuscript has to follow the natures formatting standards. People complained about the quality check takes time and it does, if manuscript is not properly formatted. You avoid it by submitting proper formatted manuscript in first submission only.
