Latest review

First review round: 15.3 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

Turnaround for decisions was very slow. Had to send repeated emails to inquire about manuscript status, and only after these emails did things seem to move along. Slowness seemed to be related with editorial office rather than reviewers (e.g. manuscript was accepted but was then in limbo for 13 weeks before being sent to the production team).
