Latest review

First review round: 5.7 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Nice experience: very detailed and prompt reviews by knowledgeable experts, supported by a very good communication with the editor. After acceptance, the paper was proofread by the publisher (Taylor & Francis), improving the style. The only downside is that it took some time that the paper appears published online, more than it is usually the case with other publishers. But overall the whole process was quicker than I expected.
