Abstract:

Based on my experience as an associate editor of Physical Review, I will talk about some aspects of scientific publishing: What are the advantages and limits of peer-review? How do researchers and journals deal with scientific misconducts and frauds? What are the publishers' strategies toward open access? Are predatory journals threatening the integrity of science?
