Latest review

First review round: 30.3 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

Terrible response times and little/no communication from editors. After 3 months post-submission with no status update I messaged the editors but only received an automated reply back that they can't respond to every query. I got the first response from reviewers only after 30 weeks. After revisions, the second response came after 20 weeks. After more revisions, third response came after 8 weeks (was finally accepted). Quality of reviews and fairness of editor(s) was good, but only consider this journal if you are prepared to wait 17 months for your paper to get published.
