Latest review

First review round: 3.6 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The manuscript was sent out for review almost immediately after submission (the journal notified me it was in review the day after submission). I received a response from editor, with two reviews, indicating ms required modification three weeks later. After making the suggested revisions, ms was accepted the same day I submitted the revisions. A very straightforward and efficient process.
