Latest review

First review round: 12.9 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

The editors took so much time to take decisions, even though the changes requested by the reviewers were relatively simple. Overall, the paper sat for more than one month on the editor's desk. In addition, just after the first submission, the editor asked a member of our lab (who had only published with co-authors of the submitted paper) to act as a reviewer. Of course, our colleague rejected the invitation because of the conflict of interests.
