Latest review

First review round: 31.1 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

The review process was very slow and frustrating here, and required frequent outreach from us to move things along. It took 18 months after addressing minor revisions for our manuscript to be accepted. To be fair, I know that 9 months after we submitted the revision we got a new editor. But we couldn't understand why it took another 9 months for the new editor to see that we had addressed the minor revisions and it was suitable for publication. When we emailed for updates the reply was always that they could provide no estimates of how much longer it would take. In the end it was accepted which we appreciated. I would not submit here again unless I'd heard they had changed their editorial process.
