Latest review

First review round: 13.0 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

I found the editorial process very professional in general and I was quite happy with the result. Still, it was a bit unfortunate that once my manuscript was actually accepted with minor revisions by one editor, after I made the requested changes, the new editor insisted on recruiting a new reviewer, who of course had a very different perspective. In principle, you can do this for ages and every single person will have something to suggest, yet the paper will never be 'perfect'. So I would say that the review process was absolutely fair but a bit tiresome.
