Seminar: "You and PRL" By Samindranath Mitra, 10.25.16/12:00PM-1:00PM/CREOL RM 103

Seminar: "You and PRL" By Samindranath Mitra
Tuesday, October 25, 2016 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
CREOL Room 103
Samindranath Mitra
Editor, Physical Review Letters

As the focus of science journals changes from dissemination of research to validation of it, why should you continue to submit your best work to Physical Review Letters? What "added value" does and should the journal provide? How do its editors determine which of the approximately 10,000 papers that it receives each year to publish? I plan to address -- with plenty of interspersed Q & A and free-flowing discussion -- these and related issues.

Samindranath (Sami) grew up in Kolkata and Delhi, and received his Ph.D. at Indiana University (Bloomington) in 1994 on theoretical aspects of the quantum Hall effect. After working on chemical physics at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, he joined Physical Review Letters. In addition to overseeing much of condensed matter physics submissions for the journal, he handles papers on transport properties in semiconductors, 2D materials, and mesoscopic systems.
