Latest review

First review round: 1.0 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

Peer review at this journal was a joke. It consisted of six numbered, vague statements: about the title, not using first person narrative, and other comments completely outside the scope of the paper. Luckily, the paper had received a lot of helpful feedback prior to publishing with AJPS. Sadly I think we realized too late this journal is probably predatory (see the publisher Scientific Research Publishing, which routinely changes domains). Fee is $999.
