Physical Review Letters (PRL) is the Letters journal of the Physical Review series, and is published by the American Physical Society. It is one of the most prestigious journals in physics. As a Letters journal publishing short reports of high importance, impact, and interest across all of physics, it is a unique publication, and no other journal has PRL’s scope and coverage of physics. We enjoy a healthy amount of submissions and recently celebrated our 50th anniversary.

However, the inner workings of PRL are however sometimes a bit mysterious to the authors and referees that make the journal what it is. The role of editor is really concerned with triad of author, referee, and editor, and managing the relationships between each of these. I will be explaining what is expected of each of these, and how they can best work together. I will also be talking about the state of the journal, and show on some new developments at PRL in view of the changing publication landscape. A question and answer session will follow the main presentation.

Daniel received his Ph.D. in physics at University College London, UK, in magnetism in 2001. Before joining PRL in 2004, he had a postdoctoral research position at the University of Birmingham, UK, and at the low-energy muon beam at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland. Daniel handles papers on condensed matter.
