The Russian Journal of Plant Physiology (Fiziologiya Rastenii) is the most popular journal in phytophysiology in the former Soviet Union. It embraces the full spectrum of plant physiology, bringing together the related aspects of biophysics, biochemistry, cytology, anatomy, genetics, etc. The journal publishes experimental and theoretical papers, reviews, short communications, and descriptions of new methods. Regular space is devoted to chronicles from Russian and international symposia, anniversary articles, and reviews of new books. Some issues cover special problems of plant physiology, presenting collections of papers and providing information in rapidly growing fields. The journal is a valuable resource for university and research departments, libraries, scientists, and post-graduates as a regular and reliable source of information.


Russian Journal of Plant Physiology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 350 reviewers, both internal and external (95%), from 11 countries (Russia, China, Germany, France, Italy, USA, Great Britain, India, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 1 day, and that from first decision to acceptance was 10-180 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
