First review round: 4.1 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The Frontiers in Microbiology interactive review system is quite good. It allows exchanges between authors, editor and reviewers in a very dynamic way. The reviewer reports were also quite good and really helped improvng the manuscript. Manuscript handling time was also quite fast.
