Motivation: I received 3 rather good quality, rigorous reviews. The reviewers were knowledgeable on the topic of the paper and helped me improve the paper. Moreover, the statistical analyses were evaluated by methodological adviser. Nice work! RI/IR is taking scientific rigor seriously, other journals could learn from this, including a few higher-ranked ones.

The first round took rather long, and the lack of online submission system meant that it's not possible to track the status of the manuscript without contacting the editors. However, communication with the editorial office was excellent.

This was the first time I have submitted something to RI/IR and I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the process.
