The process of submitting the paper was smooth with little time required on the author's behalf. Reviews were prompt and the process of addressing reviewer comments was very streamlined. All correspondence with the editorial office was extremely professional with immediate responses. This is one of the few journals asking for feedback on their submission process.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
