First review round: 7.4 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

I was very satisfied with the review process. I had two reviewers, one very positive and one rather negative. The editor seemed to like the article and gave us a rejection with the chance to resubmit. The reviewer reports were good quality and although they required a large amount of work, the suggestions greatly improved the paper. We re-submitted and the paper was sent back to the initial reviewers who were both happy with the changes and the paper was promptly accepted. I was very happy with the handling, the speed, and the reviewer reports. The subject editor seems to evaluate papers objectively and I am happy that he/she was not dissuaded by the initial negative report of reviewer 2, but rather saw potential in the paper and gave us the chance to improve it. Nothing but good experiences with this journal.
