Latest review

First review round: 11.7 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

The review process was both helpful and speedy. The reviewers were sympathetic, and broadly constructive in their feedback, and communication with Editors was professional. Problems began after the manuscript was accepted: production was extremely slow, and I was put in the position of regularly chasing the production team for proofs. It took almost a year from final acceptance before proofs were finalised.
