First review round: 7.9 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

Reviews were helpful. The whole submission process was smooth. The authors have the option to make the review history public. The data and code must be uploaded to a repository to make the results more transparent. Highly recommended publisher!
