Motivation: I have had papers accepted and rejected at Criminology under the current editorial team—Osgood, Gartner, and Baumer. The team is extremely efficient and professional. The review process is very quick, authors normally receive four reviews, and the reviews are generally thoughtful and knowledgeable. The editors actually read the submitted paper and reviewers’ comments, and they explain which comments are important and which comments are less important. When they have rejected one of my papers, the editors have provided 1-2 pages of comments explaining their decision.

Motivation: Great comments and very helpful suggestions giving me many avenues for my next revision. The reviewers and the editor were very encouraging and helpful in providing a critical and important assessment of the scientific rigor of my work. I took their suggestions and improved my manuscript significantly. The manuscript has been published and has been praised by colleagues. Although my manuscript was not accepted for publication in Criminology, anonymous reviewers and the editor were helpful in guiding me towards eventual publication. I am most thankful to them.
