Latest review

First review round: 5.6 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

This is the second time I submitted the paper to this journal and the decision was "accept". The main issue is that the scope of the journal is very specific and authors should stick strictly to the requirements. If manuscript is well written, pre-edited (in our case it was needed) by native English-speaker and is interesting enough, there are high chances to be published. We have a very positive experience with this journal, but we invested a lot of time and effort to prepare the manuscript in "proper way". Good luck!
