Latest review

First review round: 4.7 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The review process was fast, professional, and the editor guided us of what experiments were the most important to be addressed by the reviewers. I reached out couple of time to the journal and the response was quick and very helpful. I seriously think it is one of my best experience dealing with a journal with a research manuscript.
