Latest review

First review round: 18.3 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

The first round of review took a long time as the reviews sat with the editors for months before we received them. This is probably because of the length of the reviewers' comments, which was 8 pages. It was frustrating knowing the reviews were back and not hearing anything, however on the positive side the editorial staff were very helpful throughout the process.
