Latest review

First review round: 3.6 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The only problem is they do not update you on the status of your manuscript for the moment you submit it, it just stayed at "under consideration", which made us feel that it was still under editorial review. Being a prestigious journal, we thought it needed more time for the editor to make the decision to send it out to reviewers, for all that we know after close to 3 weeks, we received the reviewers' comment, then did we realize it has passed editorial review. Overall, they are very fast for my case, 3 weeks for the first review, was given 10 days to complete the first revision and the second revision came in 14 days time. After that, the editor mentioned that it was just a minor revision and if we addressed it, he will give us a final decision as soon as possible. Almost immediately when after submitting our minor revision, the editor came back within one working day to accept our paper for post-production. Kudos!
