Latest review

First review round: 8.7 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
The reviewer comments' were short but constructive. The handling editor processed my manuscript in a timely manner. However, it took a while to clear technical review processed done by the journal office (~ 1wk / round).
