Motivation: The reviews were good and the editorial management was also good. However, the initial round of reviews was excessively long- many many months, which was very difficult. The excessive duration of time for the initial review is the main motivator for the review process rating as above

Motivation: Excellent review process, and the manuscript was improved for the revisions made. This is an well-run journal. In my opinion the editor made a prudent decision in not sending back out for a 2nd round of reviews; often the editorial reflex is to simply send back out to reviewers, but that was not so in this case (to the editor's credit)
