Latest review

First review round: 2.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The submisson process was straighforward. The first review round was quick. The four reviewers comments were thourough and to the point although one reviewer was seemed negative on the study design and did not align with the other reviewers. This fact made the manuscript go through a second review. The editor was quick to accept the paper after additional explanations/comments from our side. All positive experience although it might seem too cumbersume to enroll four reviewers when three would be suffiecient in this case.
