Latest review

First review round: 3.6 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Submitting my manuscript to Heliyon Environment was a great decision. The process was quick and and easy to follow. 3 weeks after submission my manuscript came already with the reviewers comments. The editorial team contacted three reviewers who did a thorough revision of my manuscript. After implementing the suggestions and corrections recommended the quality of the manuscript substantially improved. During the second round of revisions we had only minor corrections after which it was accepted without delay. I can say it was a fair revision process.
