Latest review

First review round: 10.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

Most of the reviews were thorough, careful and helpful, but the review process was unnecessarily slow with no responses and indifference from the editor. After the acceptance, it took a while to get the paper published, mostly because the production process introduced inexplicable errors that were not in my submitted version. Overall, the process was average, and I would submit to the journal again hoping that the slow process was just an unfortunate outlier.
