Plasma is an open access, cross-disciplinary scholarly journal of scientific studies related to all aspects of plasma science, such as plasma physics, plasma chemistry and space plasma. It publishes reviews, research articles, short communications and letters. Topics also include experimental and theoretical results, and progress of interdisciplinary and application sciences in this field. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.
