Latest review

First review round: 11.6 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

This journal was the 4th journal we submitted the paper to. So, it already have been through 2 reviews in other journals. We adjusted the paper each time. Therefore, we understand why the reviewers did not write any significant suggestions. The editor also addressed the manuscript. His review was very vague since he asked us to go through all the journal's guidelines. We did it, but we were not sure what was expected of us. It would be helpful if the editor was more specific. Nevertheless he was very nice to us and the article was accepted.
