Latest review

First review round: 7.0 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

The nomenclature reviewer made us change the name of the bacteria 3 times. At each of the 4 review rounds the editor and the reviewers asked us new experiments/analysis. We all would have saved a lot of time and frustration if all the additional work was asked for at the first round of review. The editor and one of the reviewer confuse type-setting and reviewing. For exemple, the last round of review consisted in putting the abstract in one paragraph instead of two and putting one bacterial name in italic in a figure.
