The US–Japan Joint Institute of Fusion Theory Workshop on “Multiscale Methods in Plasma Physics” was held August 22–24, 2017 at the University of Colorado, Boulder, USA. This workshop focused on implicit methods combined with multiscale techniques for bridging fine and coarse scales in plasma physics. Topics included coupling the microturbulence scale with the transport scale in fusion plasmas, orbit-averaging, subcycling, and multiple time step techniques in particle-in-cell models and equation-free methods. International experts in this emerging field came together for a small discussion-oriented workshop. Select papers from work reported at this workshop are highlighted in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Plasma is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
