Latest review

First review round: 3.7 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

The whole submission process, as well as the correspondence, is done through the online submission system; this was definitely a positive aspect of my submission. I was a bit disappointed with the number and quality of the referee reports, I received only one (positive) report that was one page long. I was hoping to get some suggestions on improving the presentation of the technical (mathematical) part of the paper, but the referee focused more on less important simulation section and the impact of the paper.
