Motivation: Our experience with this Journal was excellent. The manuscript was sent to external per-review within 1 week, within 1 month we got their response. There were 3 reviewers, 1 rejected the manuscript, 2nd found minor errors, whereas the 3rd put much effort to underscore shortcomings, suggested to perform additional experiments and reorganize the manuscript to make it more reader-friendly. All reviewers were all professsionals and experts in the fields. The manuscript improved a lot after revision.
The paper was published in 7 days after acceptance.

Motivation: The overall process was very long. Editor has not done his job. They invited originally 4 reviewers and non of them was available to revise the resubmitted version. Two new reviewers were invited and they reject the manuscript based on argument that questions from reviewer #1 were not addressed. The process was not transparent at all.
