Aims and Scope
Computational Science is a rapidly growing multi- and interdisciplinary field that uses advanced computing and data analysis to understand and solve complex problems. It has reached a level of predictive capability that now firmly complements the traditional pillars of experimentation and theory.

The recent advances in experimental techniques such as detectors, on-line sensor networks and high-resolution imaging techniques, have opened up new windows into physical and biological processes at many levels of detail. The resulting data explosion allows for detailed data driven modeling and simulation.

This new discipline in science combines computational thinking, modern computational methods, devices and collateral technologies to address problems far beyond the scope of traditional numerical methods.

Computational science typically unifies three distinct elements:

• Modeling, Algorithms and Simulations (e.g. numerical and non-numerical, discrete and continuous);
• Software developed to solve science (e.g., biological, physical, and social), engineering, medicine, and humanities problems;
• Computer and information science that develops and optimizes the advanced system hardware, software, networking, and data management components (e.g. problem solving environments).

The first round of review took about 3 and a half months, with a total of three reviewers. From personal experience, the reviewers were relatively prompt, but the editorial handling was slow, and finding reviewers for the first round added to the overall slowness. Perhaps some people encountered editors who were efficient, so the speed was relatively good. This journal's impact factor may decrease this year, and it's uncertain if it can remain in the second quartile. Hopefully, it will continue to improve.

The speed is acceptable, but the level of review is uneven. Due to the limited number of experts in the relevant field, there was only one reviewer who provided comments on the text and suggested minor revisions. After submitting the revised version, it took more than 2 months to receive a response, presumably because they were looking for another reviewer. After sending a reminder email, the article was accepted for publication after 1 week, which was considered lucky.
