Motivation: The reviews were fair and the handling of the manuscript by the editor(s) also fair and professional. But the long time that this process took was surprising given my previous experiences with this journal, and this was not only due to slow reviewers – from what i could read in the online submission system it took over a month before the manuscript was even sent out to reviewers. This was a bit disappointing, but perhaps understandable: I can only guess that a significantly increased volume of manuscripts submitted to this journal has slowed down the review process. The journal continues to be a role model in handling of manuscripts and quality of reviewers, but the time lag has lowered its esteem in my view.

Motivation: Very good reviewers, speedy process, excellent handling. Reviewers comments really helped turning a manuscript with great potential but not sufficiently developed argument into one with coherent and clear message. Editor's work facilitated this.
