The state of superstring perturbation theory is reviewed with an emphasis on the state of the pure spinor superstring perturbation theory. We begin with a brief summary of the state of perturbation theory in the Ramond–Neveu–Schwarz and in the Green–Schwarz formulations of the superstring. Then we proceed to a quick review of the minimal and non-minimal pure spinor formulations of the superstring and discuss the multi-loop amplitude prescriptions in each of them. We end with a summary and open questions.
