Latest review

First review round: 12.3 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

The manuscript was handled professionally and the process was smooth. I appreciated the feedback from the reviewers; I sensed that they were highly competent reviewers. One of the reviewers gave very comprehensive feedback and great ideas for a follow-up paper. I would consider submitting a paper to this journal again.
