The idea behind this presentation is to give to the potential contributors/authors a general view about the Physical Review Family of Journals, and more specifically about Physical Review Applied journal. I first will talk on the different APS journals, their scopes, manuscript preparation and the peer-review process. Second, I will provide some specific details and information about Physical Review Applied journal, as well and some statistics. Finally, an open discussion will be organized to answer the questions of the audience.
