The O.M. Stewart Colloquium Series presents: Samindranath Mitra, Editor, Physical Review Letters, "Physics after the lab and the desk: Your work in PRL."
Physics research takes place mostly at your desk, at the keyboard, and in the lab. You communicate results through posters, talks, and papers -- leading to, hopefully, wide dissemination and recognition. The sequence entails interacting with journal editors, referees, conference chairs, journalists, and so on. I will focus on this post-research collaborative process in physics, primarily through the lens that is Physical Review Letters.
