Latest review

First review round: 5.0 weeks. Overall rating: 5 (excellent). Outcome: Accepted.

All feedback from the referees was very useful. One of the reports included a comprehensive list of comments to be addressed, and although they took work to implement, the revised manuscript came out much stronger and clearer than its initial version. The reviewing process was very efficient, the referees were helpful, and the whole process was extremely fast and efficient.
