Latest review

First review round: 12.0 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The review process was thorough and constructive, highlighting both the strengths and weaknesses of our initial submission. The reviewers focused on the important technical issues regarding our analyses (already a cause of disagreement among the co-investigators before manuscript submission) which prodded the study authors to a reasonable/defensible position. The only problematic aspect is the relatively long waiting time from submission to notification of first editorial decision, taking 12 weeks which is way above the journal's reported median time for this period of ~4-5 weeks, thus downgrading my response from "5 (Excellent)" to "4."
