Bulletin of Volcanology 20.4 wks 40.1 wks n/a 2 4 (very good) 2 (moderate) Accepted
Bulletin of Volcanology 10.3 wks 14.7 wks n/a 3 4 (very good) 4 (very good) Accepted
Motivation: The reviewing and editorial process took three rounds of comments and revision, after this manuscript was submitted and subsequently rejected in 2015, with comments from the same two reviewers who reviewed the new manuscript this year. Especially the process of keeping the editorial decisions in the hands of the Associate Editor, and then have the Executive Editor comment yet another time delayed the process. The process however did ensure a high publication quality, and a very significant involvement of the editors with their journal output, which is the most important.
Bulletin of Volcanology 8.7 wks 8.7 wks n/a 2 5 (excellent) 5 (excellent) Rejected
Motivation: The rejection in combination with very detailed comments from reviewers allowed us to take the time to revise and improve the manuscript significantly, without too much time pressure.
