Four days after submission, it was rejected. It can be said that the speed is really fast.

Ah, waiting is so frustrating. Originally, I chose this journal because it had a fast review process. I submitted it on February 23rd, and didn't receive the first review until May 4th. The first reviewer was really unethical. They accepted the review, but then delayed it for over a month without actually reviewing it. This caused a two-month delay overall, and I'm extremely annoyed.

- Submitted on February 23rd
- Under review by editor on February 24th
- In peer review on March 5th
- With editor on March 7th
- In peer review on March 8th
- With editor on April 5th
- After several attempts, finally found a reviewer
- In peer review on April 13th
- Minor revision on May 4th
- Revision submitted on May 11th
- Accepted on May 11th

Afterwards, things went quickly, it was just the first reviewer who caused a significant delay.

2021.11.16 Reject & Resubmit One reviewer rejected the submission, while another reviewer suggested major revisions. The editor requested a resubmission after incorporating the suggested changes.

2022.02.22 Major revisions One reviewer recommended major revisions, which were accepted by another reviewer.
2022.03.14 Revised
2022.04.04 Accept
Overall, the journal is very efficient and speedy. It does not waste any time. The reviewers also provide constructive feedback. As for the quality of the journal, some people say it is average. However, for newcomers in the field of environmental studies, this Tier 3 journal is a good choice.

The speed is very fast, and it's very good.
Submitted on January 19, 2022.
Revised on February 8, 2022, with three minor revisions.
Then I procrastinated for 20 days before sending it back for repairs, and it was accepted on the third day after being repaired. If there was no procrastination, the normal review and acceptance process would have taken one month. 2022-02-12

11.2 Submission, possibly unable to find suitable reviewers, multiple changes, review took nearly 3 months.
1.28 Revised comments, opinions from three reviewers, two major revisions and one resubmission.
2.8-12 Editor requested revised manuscript.
2.16 Submitted revised manuscript for review.
2.25 Accepted.
Overall, the process was fairly fast with a short review cycle. The 3-month duration was unexpected (as explained by the editor). The overall difficulty was not high, and with careful revisions, acceptance was smooth.

There are three reviewers, and the questions they asked were very sharp, ones that I couldn't answer. It is not easy just because it is open source. Thanks to the editor for giving me the opportunity for major revisions. The RSC impact factor also keeps increasing every year, which is related to strict reviewing. The process is also not short, taking three to four months. I hope the journal will continue to improve.
