Motivation: Standard handling, based on two reviewers who were not excited about the manuscript and did not find the evidence compelling enough, the editor decided not to wait for a third reviewer.

Motivation: Only two reviews received, even though a third reviewer accepted initially (who did not submit a review).
4 months in total is a rather long handling process.

Motivation: The review process was fast. It took only one day before we knew that we were under review. The quality of the reviews was ok. One had good ideas about how we could improve our manuscript, the other did not seem to have read the manuscript that well, based on the review it gave.
