Aims and Scope
Physical Review A (PRA) publishes important developments in the rapidly evolving areas of atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics, quantum information, and related fundamental concepts.

PRA covers atomic, molecular, and optical physics, foundations of quantum mechanics, and quantum information, including:

-Fundamental concepts
-Quantum information
-Atomic and molecular structure and dynamics; high-precision measurement
-Atomic and molecular collisions and interactions
-Atomic and molecular processes in external fields, including interactions with strong fields and short pulses
-Matter waves and collective properties of cold atoms and molecules
-Quantum optics, physics of lasers, nonlinear optics, and classical optics

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Submitted on September 24, 2020, accepted on March 1, 2021.

The first impression is that it was slow. The first review took two months, and the feedback was a major revision without a specific deadline for modifications. The second review took over two months, and the last reviewer did not provide any feedback. One reviewer provided feedback three days after the associate editor's acceptance.

The second impression is that it was thorough. The reviewers were highly skilled and pointed out structural issues in the article. Their questions were well-thought-out. After acceptance, the proofreading by the publishing department was the most meticulous I have ever encountered, with many grammar issues being corrected.

Overall, it was a very pleasant submission experience.

You should not engage in scientific research if you are this kind of person. Mindless criticism, apart from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), you have published a lot in Physical Review A (PRA); there is even more publication in Physical Review B (PRB), isn't that just more watered down? Every journal has some low-quality articles, but overall the Physical Review series is still acceptable.
