Latest review

First review round: 23.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

The overall review process took a very long time. Sending several reminders after each submission step seemed to speed up the process, no clue what the outcome would be without those reminders. Based on the communication with the associate editor, it was clear that the internal communication in this journal was not working properly. However, for the fact that apparantly they had a hard time to find reviewers, they should get some credit.
