Latest review

First review round: 12.0 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

Manuscript was submitted for a month before editor came back with questions. We addressed them and resubmitted, then it went out for review, the review process took about a month and a half. The reviewer comments were easy to address and the manuscript was resubmitted quickly. The manuscript was then accepted pending minor revisions requested by the editor, which were addressed the same day. The manuscript was officially accepted days later. The whole process took less than 4 months.
