Latest review

First review round: 1.4 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The handling by the editorial office was great and the reviewing process was very fast. One of the reviewers was also quite helpful, while the other one obviously did not have much knowledge of the topic our publication was about. In some cases he/she made completely contradictory comments in comparison to the other reviewer. This was quite annoying as the manuscript was submitted for a special issue concerning exactly our area of work, so I was expecting all the reviewers to be more expert in this field.
