Latest review

First review round: 11.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

I felt like there were very long lag times between submission of the manuscript (initially and revised) and any communication from the journal. I wondered if perhaps the editorial board and referees were not familiar with my area of research, as the reviews were not particularly helpful, and the whole process took a very long time. It also seemed like the editor was changed between the initial submission and the revised submission of the manuscript.
