I have submitted a revised paper to the Elsevier journal 'Ecological Informatics'. How long does it take to get comments? I thought Elsevier has the fastest processing journals.

Thank you for reaching out to us. Every journal has a different response time ranging from a few weeks to months. The peer review process, which your paper is currently undergoing, in particular, can take very long.
