Latest review

First review round: 8.9 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

This was my first experience in publishing a paper. I found that the ratio "improvement of manuscript" versus "amount of time it takes to make corrections and resubmit" was excellent, particularly when I compare to my second experience in publishing with Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology. But this may also have to do with the fact that this paper (in JAB) was more a technical subject than a biological one (so maybe more straightforward to answer).
