Latest review

First review round: 15.1 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

It took one complete year. The communication with the editor was always fluid. However, the paper went through four unnecessary rounds and the editor just made comments at the end (did she read it before?). The review could be improved if the editor takes a more active role as a referee and provide feedback earlier in the process.
