Plasma Physics Reports (Fizika Plasmy) was founded in 1975 in order to publish papers on a comparatively young and extremely fruitful branch of modern science—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.

Plasma Physics Reports is abstracted and/or indexed in:
Academic OneFile, Academic Search, Astrophysics Data System (ADS), Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), Chemical and Earth Sciences, Current Abstracts, Current Contents Collections / Electronics & Telecommunications Collection, Current Contents/Physical, EBSCO, Gale, Google Scholar, INIS Atomindex, INSPEC, Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition, OCLC, SCImago, Scopus, Science Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch), Summon by ProQuest.
