Martin Blume

Martin Blume is the Editor-in-Chief of the American Physical Society, publisher of Physical Review journals, Physical Review Letters, and Reviews of Modern Physics, all recognized as among the most prestigious titles in the world of physics publishing. Since 1996 he has been on leave from his position as senior physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory where he served as head of condensed matter theory, chairman of the National Synchrotron Light Source Department, and Deputy Director of the Laboratory.

His research covers many areas of atomic and condensed matter physics and he has served on numerous panels for the NAS-NRC, the Department of Energy, and the National Science Foundation. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the British Institute of Physics, and the American Physical Society. He received the E.O. Lawrence Award in 1981 for his contributions to theoretical analysis of magnetic phenomena in neutron scattering and for his scientific leadership in solid state physics.

Dr. Blume frequently writes and speaks about the challenge of electronic publishing and associated questions of intellectual property, archiving, peer review, the dual role of paper and electronic media, and the economic questions of cost minimization and recovery.
