It embraces the full spectrum of plant physiology and brings together the related aspects of biophysics, biochemistry, cytology, anatomy, genetics, etc. The journal publishes experimental and theoretical articles, reviews, short communications, and descriptions of new methods. Some issues cover special problems of plant physiology, thus presenting collections of articles and providing information in rapidly growing fields. The editorial board is highly interested in publishing research from all countries and accepts manuscripts in English.

PEER REVIEW

Russian Journal of Plant Physiology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 300 experts, both internal and external (94%), from 7 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2019 was 20 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 15 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2019 was 60%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal Knowledge.
