Latest review

First review round: 2.1 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Before submitting to this journal I emailed the editor as I was not sure if my work was within the scope. I received a reply on the same day inviting me to submit. This very speedy and professional response was repeated with all communications with the managing editor and editor in chief. I was also given very good advice on how to best improve a table which would appear in the main text and allowed to submit associated files both as supplementary data on the journal webpage as well as in Dryad (paid for by Journal of Heredity). Both reviewers were extremely speedy and gave good critiques in a friendly and professional manner. Overall the personal attention to detail and swift clear communication style of the editors is best I have ever experienced.
