Aims and Scope
Plasma Sources Science and Technology (PSST) reports on low-temperature plasmas and ionized gases operating over all ranges of gas pressure and plasma density, with varying degrees of ionization. The emphasis of PSST is on the fundamental science of these plasmas, their sources and the physical and chemical processes initiated or sustained by them, as elucidated through theoretical, computational or experimental techniques. PSST also reports on new experimentally or theoretically derived fundamental data (e.g. cross sections, transport coefficients) required for investigation of low temperature plasmas. Reports that relate to the technology and applications of these plasmas should be closely linked to the science and fundamental processes occurring in the plasma state.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Four consecutive submissions, three rejections from water journals, and one direct tragedy. Although it appears to have undergone peer review, in reality, the editors simply reject it with a single sentence after reading it. The majority of the rejections lack any constructive feedback, usually just stating that there is no innovation. Through long-term observation, I have noticed that the majority of articles published in this European journal are by Europeans, with very few from other regions and almost none from Chinese authors. I initially thought it was a top journal in the field of plasma, but now I am very disappointed and do not recommend it.

The following text translates to:

"An established plasma journal, it holds high value and recognition in its niche field. The downside is that the review and evaluation process is relatively slow, and the chosen reviewers are generally strict, often delving deep into the physical mechanisms of the paper. From submission to acceptance, it went through two rounds of minor revisions, with each small revision being reviewed, hence causing a longer duration."
