Latest review

First review round: 27.4 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
What is clear from my experience is that authors must be prepared to micromanage the review process with this journal and be very pro-active (reminder e-mails may not be sent to tardy reviewers unless the author makes inquiries). After 5 months from first submission, with no word from the editor, I asked for a status update. I was told they hadn't heard back from one reviewer and that a reminder e-mail would be sent to them. A month later I hadn't heard back yet and sent a follow-up message. I received my first response from reviewers just days later. Again, waited a long time (3 months) after second submission before asking for a status update and, again, received reviewer responses only days later, so my inquiry likely prompted action.
