Latest review

First review round: 9.6 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

This paper was assigned to three reviewers, and in addition it was reviewed by the associate editor as well. Some of the reviews reflected personal opinions rather factual errors. Indeed, I later realized that the published paper contains some typos in one of the formulas. I wished the reviewers were more attentive to that, rather than pushing their own philosophy. Moreover, having 3+1 reviewers means a lot of constituencies to satisfy.
