Physical Review Letters publishes over 20,000 pages of scientific content per year while maintaining its presence as the premier physics journal.  The purpose of this talk is to shed light into Physical Review Letter’s editorial process and policy and address the many questions frequently raised by the thousands of active authors, referees and readers.  I will discuss upcoming projects and policy changes that may affect you and reflect on how PRL needs to orient itself in the rapidly changing landscape of scientific publishing.
