Latest review

First review round: 7.9 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

The reviewer's suggestions mostly contributed to the manuscript and the most important was that the editor gave a chance to correct. I had similar remarks regarding my paper at another journal and the editor did not give any chance to correct. Based on my experience with Prof. Palermo, he gives a chance to address the remarks, even they seems very complicated.
