Latest review

First review round: 1.7 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Incredibly fast process all around. I've never had a paper go through the process so quickly at every stage. That being said, the review reports weren't super detailed compared to other journals, but we went through an entire round of reviews and had the paper accepted in the same amount of time it sometimes takes for other journals to even send out to reviewers the first time.
