Aims and Scope
Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292) publishes regular research papers, reviews, letters and communications covering all aspects of the remote sensing process, from instrument design and signal processing to the retrieval of geophysical parameters and their application in geosciences. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish experimental, theoretical and computational results in as much detail as possible so that results can be easily reproduced. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

Received manuscript on June 16, 2022.
Received first review on July 18, 2022.
Initially, two reviewers provided extensive comments.
On July 23, 2022, the number of reviewers increased to three, and the editor sent an email requesting the manuscript to be revised within ten days and to respond to the reviewers' comments.
Since the status of the reviewers can be seen on the MDPI system, I started preparing additional experiments and improving the manuscript as soon as I received the comments from the two reviewers, so there was still enough time.
Reviewer 1 asked me to conduct physical experiments and provided one or two comments, which were relatively easy to address. Currently, MDPI places great emphasis on having physical experiments, so there is a high probability of rejection if the study is purely simulation-based.
Reviewer 2 had a different perspective from mine, and I did not understand why they reviewed my paper. It seemed like they didn't fully comprehend my research and frequently asked me to cite their own papers in their comments. They listed nearly 15 comments, which I addressed one by one and also referenced the literature they mentioned.
Reviewer 3 carefully reviewed the paper and suggested me to add some theoretical aspects in a few sections, modify the abstract, and address language issues. I replied to each comment and made the necessary revisions.
Received minor revisions on July 28, 2022. Reviewer 2 had no further comments, and Reviewer 3 was no longer involved (probably considered the issues as minor and not in need of further review). Reviewer 1 provided additional comments, suggesting to merge some headings and correct spelling errors. I replied to each comment.

Actually, if the manuscript is highly innovative and has sufficient workload, the review process is quite fast. The manuscript I am currently working on is about landscape ecology/biogeography and carbon sequestration. I submitted it to an RCR with an impact factor of 10.2 this summer. Later, I got seriously ill (sigh, doing a PhD is not easy) and it coincided with my imminent graduation. Fortunately, I saw a relevant special issue in RS, so I submitted it there. The first review took 10 days, with three reviewers giving acceptance, minor revision, and neutral feedback, respectively. I received major revisions. After 10 days, I made the revisions and submitted them the next day. The minor revisions were completed in the morning, and the acceptance came in the afternoon. The speed is indeed impressive. But to be honest, I rarely read articles from RS. I mainly read journals in ecology, such as GCB, GEB, EL, JOE, ECOL, and so on. RS has always had a mediocre reputation, but my doctoral career is coming to an end, and I don't have much time left. I just want to quickly showcase my current work. It's better than letting good things rot in my hands. I wish all my colleagues good luck with their submissions and hope to publish more in RSE and TGRS. When I had no other choice but to choose RS, I polished the article well. Being responsible to others and to oneself. After all, an article stays in the database even after a person's death.
