Latest review

First review round: 15.4 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
The editorial and review processes were handled most professionally, and the quality of the three reviews and the associate editor's comments was high. The time to the first decision, whilst rather lengthy, was appropriate given the length and complexity of the paper.
