Latest review

First review round: 104.2 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

I have published in the journal more than once. The same thing on both occasions...effectively, five rounds of review on each occasion. I like the journal, but the review process is just burdensome. I would think twice about further submissions. It is one of those journals you have to "hit" once if you work in that area of research.
