Latest review

First review round: 10.3 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

No complaints at all with this journal. Reasonably fast review time and the paper improved in light of the referees' comments. Commentary was constructive, not pedantic. No one even asked me to write out, by hand, how I dummy coded variables (protip y'all: it's 2017...I mean, it's after 1994 and software does that..). Very fast post-acceptance production phase as well--paper was online in about a week after official acceptance. Good copy-editing; the few changes recommended enhanced the text. A journal ultimately reflects its editor, so Dr. Tight deserves kudos.
