Latest review

First review round: 8.6 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The process from this journal is exactly like a journal should operate. My paper was given two reviews and the reviewers got enough time to give me excellent reviews. They were long, but thorough, and significantly improved the writing of the manuscript. It was clear that the paper was considered thoughtfully. The subject editor also gave great advice and helped with content as well as minor editing details to fit the style of the journal. The first decision was 'minor revisions'. Given the requested revisions were mainly in the writing and clarity of methods, I would agree with that outcome. They also gave plenty of time to make the revisions, and the final acceptance was quick. I had a great experience at this journal and will definitely submit there agian
