How should a non-scientist publish new work?
« on: 03/09/2009 23:38:51 »
I honestly think I have solved the gravity problem as it relates to field unification theory. Yeah, I know that is a huge claim. Nonetheless, assume for the sake of this post that I have a clue. I have some questions related to this but it should be noted that the solution will possibly spit in the face of some of the established community - not intended of course. With that in mind, I would like to know:

1. How does an unknown, non-physicist, get their work reviewed by a credible source that may feel threatened by it?

2. How does the same get their work published?

3. Who would you recommend to take the work and put it into submittable format?

Again - I know what this sounds like, I accept that I could be wrong but the science, common sense and math seem to work.

Thank you for your consideration.

Rob

A great problem with discoveries by folks like myself and yourself is that we may lack the ability to judge the usefulness of the discovery. Most new things that are thought of have been thought of before. So without even seeing what you have, I would say that it is unlikely that you can find interest among physicists and maybe not even enough interest to engage you with meaningful discussion.

That said; I would like to see what you have. If it is outside the mainstream view, it may be better to start a thread in the New Theories forum where a lot of us hang out and discuss new ideas.

I tend to agree. I moved this post along with a short preview of the idea as you suggested.
