Motivation: The journal indicates that it is interested in Molluscan physiological papers, but the reasons given for manuscript rejection suggest that the focus is behavioral and ecology. This manuscript was rejected due to the lack of “relevance to field conditions” and “behavior in the field.” Although, I enjoy reading this journal, I would caution physiologist about submitting their manuscripts. On the other hand, behavioral scientist and ecologist would likely benefit from the very fast response times.

Motivation: Reviewers were anonymous but clearly competent. The editor was particularly attentive to organization of the MS, compliance to journal style and language rules, and related details. Total processing time from submission to publication was less than one year, which I regard as excellent.
