Latest review

First review round: 13.3 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

The process was simple, but only one of the reviews provided a full review with explicit recommendations for improvement. Fortunately the associated editor provided useful feedback. There were minor amendments required by the editorial office that delayed acceptance by a month in each instance, with the requirements on one occasion having already been dealt with previously. Amendments included confirming that a map was original and altering an ethics statement- which could have been handled quickly.
