Received the acceptance notice on September 26, 2022, and I am very happy. In order to objectively evaluate this journal and not let joy cloud my judgment, I will only provide my evaluation in November. In terms of speed, the review process of this journal is considered average, with a submission in February and acceptance in September, taking a total of 7 months. From a rational analysis, this duration is not considered long.

Based on the review comments, the reviewer was meticulous (not ruling out the possibility of encountering a good reviewer). Even minor errors were identified, and their contribution is no less than that of the co-authors.

In terms of professionalism, the journal "Harmful Algae" (translated) indicates that it focuses on a relatively niche field, which demonstrates a good level of expertise.

Among my several articles, this journal has provided the best experience, and I hope to achieve a high impact factor by the end of the year.

HA is an authoritative journal in the field of harmful algal blooms, and it has published many classic articles by leading experts, which are highly recognized in the industry. However, it cannot be denied that the quality of HA's articles varies greatly, with some being excellent while others are mere filler. In recent years, the journal has shown significant development and a notable increase in impact factor, and it is hoped that it will continue to improve.
