First review round: 12.6 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
The reviews of the external editors were of overall high quality. Moreover, the additional comments by the editor who summarized the reviewers´ comments and added comments of her own were very helpful and detailed, and helped to fine-tune the manuscript. Finally, we always received rapid and friendly answers to all of our questions during the editorial process.
