Latest review

First review round: 15.3 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Good journal, but the process leaves room for improvements. The first round took a long time only to get short reviews. One reviewer was unreasonable with baseless comments in multiple rounds, and the editor didn't seem keen to help (editors shouldn't be just forwarding reviews). Another reviewer was quite positive, so that helped. The paper got accepted after long rebuttals. After the long first round, the process wasn't that long overall (and the editor was prompt), but it could have been faster and smoother if unreasonable reviewers are not given attention and if editors are active in identifying such cases and communicate with the authors. After acceptance, the PDF was produced quickly.
