Physics is a human activity. Doing hard science involves not only having ideas and taking data, but also convincing your peers by communicating your results in a clear fashion. In this talk, I will offer a bit of the editorial perspective from PRL on how scientific knowledge is established in papers. Our main topic will be the way papers are conceived, treated by editors, assessed by peers, and finally published.
