Physical Review Letters (PRL), established in 1958, is a peer reviewed, scientific journal that is published 52 times per year by the American Physical Society. According to various measurement standards, which includes the Journal Citation Reports impact factor, Physical Review Letters is considered to be a prestigious journal in the field of physics.
PRL is published as a print journal, and is in electronic format, online and CD-ROM. Its focus is rapid dissemination of significant, or notable, results of fundamental research on all topics related to all fields of physics. This is accomplished by rapid publication of short reports, called "Letters". Papers are published and available electronically one article at a time. When published in such a manner, the paper is available to be cited by other work. Four editors are listed for this journal: Jack Sandweiss, George Basbas, Robert Garisto, and Reinhardt B. Schuhmann.
Famous quotes containing the word review:
“The thanksgiving of the old Jew, Lord, I thank Thee that Thou didst not make me a woman, doubtless came from a careful review of the situation. Like all of us, he had fortitude enough to bear his neighbors afflictions.”
—Frances A. Griffin, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 19, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)
