First review round: 2.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

We have been happy with the reviewers comments, which was not only quick but also extremely relevant. It seemed that all 3 reviewers had knowledge on the experimental aspect and data analysis work too. The editorial decision was prompt and efficient. We have also been satisfied with the production and proofreading team. Our paper was online in three weeks after acceptance. Apart from the HEAVY open access fee that is charged, our overall experience with NAR has been positive and we are happy to have our paper published in such a reputed journal.
