Comments
  ·  Overall quality rating: 4 / 5  ·  Recommendation: 5 / 5
The review process for this journal was very fair and straightforward. The reviewers made sensible and realistic remarks and helped improve the quality of the paper. As the submission went from major revision, to minor revision, to accept, the editor's role was quite limited and consisted in passing along the reviews and making a decision that emerged quite clearly from the reviews. The only problem I encountered were the relatively long waiting times: More than 4 months passed to get through the first review round and more than 2 months to get through the second one. Another month passed from submitting minor revisions to final acceptance.
Given that this is a young, promising open access journal with a prestigious editorial board and considering the transparent and fair review process, I can only recommend submitting.
