Latest review

First review round: 49.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

The editors were helpful, but the review process took much longer than the projected 4 to 6 months. After almost a year, only one of the reviews had any comments to make, and they were rather superficial. I realise this is not the journal's fault but rather a defect of the peer review process in general, but it nevertheless needs to be stated.
