Drawn back before first editorial decision after 54 days Drawn back 2022
Motivation: The status of the manuscript was "Manuscript under consideration" since the second day. After one month, we contacted the journal and asked for an update. They told us that the editor had not started looking at the paper. After 7 weeks, the status was still the same.

I think that NHB is a fantastic journal. It is a bit unfortunate, however, that takes is that long to decide if a paper fits or not.

Motivation: This experience with NHB's review process was one of the best experiences that I've had with a review process. It took a bit longer than I expected, but it was worth it.

Accepted 2017
Motivation: We received 3 high quality reviews that helped us further improve the quality manuscript. The response times from the journal were somewhat slower from what they strive for, but this is understandable. My overall impression was that NHB is still working on its internal routines that will help streamline the process even further.
