Latest review

First review round: 20.4 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Accepted.

I think everything went well apart from the rather long wait for the first review response. Usually VSD does it within 2 months in my experience. One of the reviewers didn't leave any comments, but the other submitted a page of useful comments. Please be aware of word and figure limits when you publish with VSD as they might object to any exceedance in these respects if you don't give a motivation. On the other hand I managed to exceed the figure limit grossly as long as I gave a motivation.
