Will there be any difference in the review process if I publish my article OA?

No. Whether you choose to publish OA or keep your article behind a paywall, your article will undergo the same rigorous peer review to sustain the high quality of the journals. The editor’s decision to accept or reject your article won't be affected by the mode you choose either. The only difference takes place after your paper gets accepted. If you publish in OA, your article will be immediately available to everyone, and as an author, you retain the copyright of your article.
