Physical Review Letters: Its Review Process and Publications, Its Role in Physics Research, and Its Future.

For researchers working in physical sciences, Physical Review Letters is one of the most desirable venues for publication of their work. What makes the journal highly desirable?  And, how should it meet the challenges posed by an increasingly competitive and more "impact"-oriented scientific publishing culture?

In this talk, I will discuss these questions with you by looking at PRL's publication philosophy, its review process and publications, and what it means to the physics community and to physics research.  Your thoughts and views as well as suggestions will be most welcome.
