The review process can be lengthy and involve major changes to all aspects of a paper. As authors, reviewers and editor on a paper we tend to see only our side of the process, or at best have a partial view of the other parties’ perspective through decision letters and authors’ responses. In this chapter we use a case study of a paper passing through the review process to interweave these different perspectives. One of us, Petra, was lead author on the paper, while the other, Mike, was the action editor. We present the process in the form of a first-person dialogue between us, interspersed with comments from the reviewers. We conclude with some general reflections for the publishing process.
