Photosynthesis Research is an international journal dealing with both basic and applied aspects of photosynthesis. It covers all aspects of photosynthesis research, including light absorption and emission, excitation energy transfer, primary photochemistry, model systems, membrane components, protein complexes, electron transport, photophosphorylation, carbon assimilation, regulatory phenomena, molecular biology, environmental and ecological aspects, photorespiration, and bacterial and algal photosynthesis. The journal publishes research at all levels of plant organization: molecular, subcellular, cellular, whole plant, canopy, ecosystem and global. Manuscripts are always reviewed by recognized authorities in the field.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
