Latest review

First review round: 23.1 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

While many of the reviewers comments were fair some were fairly naive. One reviewer complained about how recent the references used were but due to the nature of the paper this was a necessity. Overall the biggest issue with the journal was the time taken for initial reviews to come back. I appreciate this was initially over the holiday season but almost 6 months to hear anything back is far too long.
