Aims and Scope
Journal of Computational Physics thoroughly treats the computational aspects of physical problems, presenting techniques for the numerical solution of mathematical equations arising in all areas of physics. The journal seeks to emphasize methods that cross disciplinary boundaries.

The Journal of Computational Physics also publishes short notes of 4 pages or less (including figures, tables, and references but excluding title pages). Letters to the Editor commenting on articles already published in this Journal will also be considered. Neither notes nor letters should have an abstract.

Submitted at the end of November 2022, the system status changed to "invite 2 reviewers, 1 reviewer accepted, 0 submissions" two months later. However, this status persisted for seven months after submission! In the sixth month, I contacted the Journal Manager and communicated for one month, also providing additional recommendations for reviewers. During this time, the J Manager copied the email to the Editor in Chief and a certain associate editor (presumably the handling editor), and I separately sent professional and polite emails to the EiC and the associate editor. However, neither of the two editors responded, and there was no substantial progress in the review status of the paper. After discussing with some scholars and seeing the decline in the impact factor of JCP in 2023, it felt like this might be JCP's style. Therefore, I replied to all, politely stating these facts and our pressure, and requested to withdraw the submission. The J Manager asked how the EiC should proceed. Surprisingly, the EiC quickly replied, saying "this is fine for me" in a very disdainful manner. As a result, the withdrawal was quickly processed.

2 reviewers, both reviewers asked relevant questions, no negative feedback, mainly considered the Numerical Tests section to be weak, and one reviewer even kindly helped design the Numerical Tests. After revisions, the paper has improved significantly. The resubmitted manuscript is expected to follow the process and format of major revisions and will likely be sent to the same two reviewers. This is the first submission, interdisciplinary, and related to unstructured grid algorithms. It is clear that the reviewers have a deeper understanding of numerical aspects rather than algorithm aspects. Perhaps mathematicians find programming implementation to be trivial, haha. Currently, considering the audience and publication volume, this journal is not difficult to submit to and has good efficiency.
