Latest review

First review round: 25.9 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

Given the length of the review process, the reviews were of low quality, some of them just stating typographical errors, and one was just a few sentences long. The editor himself, it has to be said, has provided the most detailed feedback and thus made a great effort to make up for the disappointing reviews. The typesetters introduced some errors at critical points in the manuscript. The article appeared swiftly as an online first publication but it seems to take around two years until it will actually appear in an issue.
