Latest review

First review round: 4.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Communication with the editorial office was quick and, to our surprise, a single revision was sufficient. In general, the review process helped to improve our manuscript and prevent possible misconceptions through marginal adjustments. However, the effort for the direct responses was substantial as the submission was evaluated by four reviewers, out of which one was clearly outside the research field and another one challenged every single claim and provided 17 major requests (despite rating our work as highly significant). Given this effort, we would have appreciated it if the final publication would have been accompanied by the peer review correspondence.
