Latest review

First review round: 34.7 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The editor in chief and the associate editors replied to my requests when it was necessary. They are professional and very helpful. Furthermore, there was a problem concerning the proof service and after 10 minutes from my email, the editor in chief was in charge to fix the problem. I can be only grateful for her very professional support, she understood the problem with the copyediting service and she took a position about it. Besides, the associate editor manage carefully the review process and also her comments were helpful in improving the quality of the manuscript. Long review process but I am very satisfied about the successful conclusion of it.
