Latest review

First review round: 6.3 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

The reviewers spent a lot of time giving very clear and helpful constructive criticism. The process was fair. I needed to make a lot of changes during the first revision but the editor let me have a year and then extended it when I asked (covid-related delays to work). The changes made absolutely improved the paper.
