Latest review

First review round: 5.3 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

This journal is extremely fast with the review process. Editor was excellent and review was tough but fair. It took us over 6 months to address all critiques but it was totally worth it, as a result, the manuscript was significantly improved. Following acceptance the paper was available online the same week. I was extremely happy with the review process, but very disappointed with the production process following the acceptance. The proofs were absolutely terrible. Production team made typos in the title, throughout text, figure quality was terrible, and communication with the production team was very difficult. It took us several attempts to get to the agreement and bring the manuscript to the acceptable publication quality.
