  • Published since the infancy of plasma physics; founded 1975
  • Covers high-temperature plasma physics connected with the problem of controlled nuclear fusion based on magnetic and inertial confinement; physics of cosmic plasma; gas discharge plasma, and more
  • Along with other original communications, the journal offers topical reviews and conference proceedings

Plasma Physics Reports  is a peer reviewed journal devoted to plasma physics. The journal covers the following topics: high-temperature plasma physics related to the problem of controlled nuclear fusion based on magnetic and inertial confinement; physics of cosmic plasma, including magnetosphere plasma, sun and stellar plasma, etc.; gas discharge plasma and plasma generated by laser and particle beams. The journal also publishes papers on such related topics as plasma electronics, generation of radiation in plasma, and plasma diagnostics. As well as other original communications, the journal publishes topical reviews and conference proceedings.

PEER REVIEW

Plasma Physics Reports is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 55 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 40 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 40%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
