Latest review

First review round: 22.9 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

This manuscript took a long time to get accepted. It was basically put on hold due to one reviewer keeping on questioning some aspects of the paper due to lack of understanding. The editor-in-chief finally took over and suggested us to make some last changes before accepting the article. I appreciated the attitude of the editor-in-chief in not blindly relying on one negative reviewer. He went through the manuscript himself and took a decision. Although I am very satisfied with the editor-in-chief, the whole process turned out to be way too lenghty.
