Motivation: The review process was fast, professional, and the editor guided us of what experiments were the most important to be addressed by the reviewers. I reached out couple of time to the journal and the response was quick and very helpful. I seriously think it is one of my best experience dealing with a journal with a research manuscript.

Motivation: The third reviewer was not objective. Journal has one round revision policy so after the reviewer raised not feasible issues/experiments after resubmission, we do not have an possibility to react.

Motivation: JCB has an academic Ed Board. The Editor who handled my paper did a great job. We had two positive reviews and one negative one. The Editor gave us clear guidance on what we needed to do to revise our paper. This included instructions to ignore the negative reviewer. Overall the process was fair, balanced and I will submit more work there.
