Motivation: I appreciate the rapid review of JBC. That is why I gave them a 4. I am a little concerned with the reviewers. Sometimes the reviews are reasonable and sometimes they are not. It feels like the reviewers are selected randomly and may or may not have appropriate expertise for the submitted manuscript based on their responses.

The process was fast and relatively clear.

Motivation: Turn around time with reviewers was very quick, queries on initial submission were answered on the same day. Automated submission system is very efficient.
