Latest review

First review round: 43.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

The review took over 10 months, and several unreturned emails checking on the status of the review. After this wait, one review was one paragraph long and simply stated the abstract should be "jazzed up". The other review was two paragraphs without much substance. For a top journal, I was disappointed in the length of review, quality of review and lack of communication.
