Due to being a relatively niche field, but a good idea, the results were also good. So I decided to give it a try. I originally thought it would be difficult to find reviewers, but within a week after submission, reviewers were found. After one month, two experts returned with major revisions. Both provided positive feedback. One had a 2000-word question, very objective. The other provided constructive suggestions for improvement. There were 20 days for revisions, followed by minor revisions and acceptance. Altogether, it took about 3 and a half months.

I encountered good reviewers and editors. Colleagues who previously submitted manuscripts advised that the Cover letter and Justification statement are crucial and should be well-written. Also, Google Chrome has compatibility issues with the submission system. It is recommended to use Firefox for manuscript submission.

Submitted at the end of 2020, accepted in early 2021, the whole process from submission to acceptance took a little over two months. This is considered quite fast, as other journals usually take two months to review and return the manuscript. The speed and efficiency of this journal are commendable. The journal provides a short review time for reviewers and a short time for authors to make revisions. Previously, when reviewing for this journal, they usually only gave two weeks for review and about three to four weeks for revisions. Overall, the reviewers are also good, providing diverse and constructive comments. As long as the author responds seriously to the reviewers' comments, it is sufficient. The only downside is that it is a bit expensive, so one must work hard to earn money to sustain their research work.
