The Sherwood 2021/2022 Special Topic Collection in Physics of Plasmas is composed of peer reviewed articles submitted by the 2021 and 2022 International Sherwood Fusion Theory Conference invited speakers and the student presentation award winners and their advisors. The two conferences were held August 16-18, 2021 and April 4-6, 2022 with the objective of communicating recent theoretical and computational results in the physics of controlled fusion energy. With ~110 combined invited and contributed talks in each of the two years, the research topics spanned a wide range of theoretical and computational magnetically confined fusion plasma physics, including but not limited to fundamental plasma theory, plasma instability, core and edge turbulence, transport and equilibrium, energetic particles, disruption, machine learning for fusion applications, advanced numerical algorithms and modeling.

Manuscripts considered for publication in the Physics of Plasmas are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance: to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in observational, computational, and theoretical plasma physics.
Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Editorial Team of the Physics of Plasmas will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts will publish in an issue after acceptance and collected together with a Preface prepared by the Guest Editors to highlight this important and timely area. For more information on the journal’s editorial policies, please click here.
Manuscripts must be submitted through the journal’s online submission system (PXP). Please select the Special Topic “Papers from the 2021-2022 Sherwood Fusion Theory Conferences” to submit your manuscript for consideration in this Special Topic.
This Special Topic is by invitation only. Please select “YES-INVITED” during the submission process to confirm your invited status from the Guest Editors.
