Latest review

First review round: 8.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

The review process was a bit overshadowed by the fact that the editor had to ask 12 potential reviewers to receive two reviews. The communication with the editor was very effective and constructive. As to the reviews, from the suggestions of the first reviewer it was possible to conclude that this was an expert in the field. The comments from the other reviewer were a bit out of place and one could only conclude that the reviewer was not the field expert.
