Latest review

First review round: 40.4 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Accepted.

I waited 10 months to get the reviewers' opinions which were very succint. There is apparently a problem with this journal. The associate editor I exchange with was not able to contact the Chief Editor to send him my manuscript. I finally (after nine months and half of waiting and multiple dunning emails to the associate editor) decide to contact the Chief Editor myself who gave me a really fast answer in three days. The final version of the article was published two months after that.
