Motivation: Compared to review processes at other journals, the editor was more in contact with us during this submission, informing us about the progress of the reviews and explaining a small delay. The review process felt thorough, with constructive, useful comments both by the editor and reviewers. Overall, a very positive experience. Critical, constructive, and therefore helpful in improving the paper but respectful and friendly tone, and the editor was very fast in responding to questions.

Motivation: The reviews of the external editors were of overall high quality. Moreover, the additional comments by the editor who summarized the reviewers´ comments and added comments of her own were very helpful and detailed, and helped to fine-tune the manuscript. Finally, we always received rapid and friendly answers to all of our questions during the editorial process.

Motivation: Quick turnaround compared to other journals in the field, particularly considering the allowed length of the ms (up to 10k words). Handling editor didn't just forward the reviews as is sometimes the case, but had clearly read both the ms and the reviews and pointed out which suggestions to prioritise. Handling editor was also quick to respond to a follow-up question of mine.
