Motivation: The quality of the reviews was good and the paper improved as a result. However, the overall process was extremely (and unnecessarily) long.Took six months to get the first reviews. Several critiques but really minor in nature. We re-submitted as fast as possible hoping that the editor would give us a fast acceptance but that wasn't the case and the paper was re-sent to the reviewer. Fair enough, but it took almost another 6 months to hear from them again. This time they came back with super minor things. We revise and resubmit within a short time. To our disbelief, it went back to the reviewer again and took more than a month to get their reply which was obviously to accept the paper.
