Motivation: The review experience with this journal was mostly positive. The first round of comments improved the manuscript greatly, as well as the second round. However, my experience is not excellent because the duration to receiving the editorial decision was slightly disproportional with the amount of changes that I had to make.

Motivation: This was my first experience as a first author in publishing in an outlet of this magnitude. At times the reviewers could notice my lack of experience in publishing - e.g. grammatical constructions, details in the text that were redundant, etc. Nevertheless, the reviewers were professional, they used only constructive feed-back, and supported my efforts. The managing editor was helpful as well, and provided me all the required information.

I am strongly considering this journal as a possible outlet for my future work.
