Physics after the lab and the desk: Your work in PRL

Physics research takes place mostly at your desk, at the keyboard, 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 others. I will focus on this
post-research collaborative process in physics, now in a state of flux
in the age of social media and Google Scholar, primarily through the
lens that is Physical Review Letters.
