I've already graduated College but my degree wasn't in Science but Criminal Justice. So I dont know if I can publish via College Universities.

Im looking to get my ideas out there in the community.

Lately I have been having some deep insights into Spacetime, Asteroid Defense, etc, so I was wondering if my ideas hold any value to the people who have the time, resources, and education into the field. Im not looking to get paid but if my idea is really good that would be nice.

Ive done some research into this through Google but haven't really come across anything.

You'll be wiser to pursue a science-based qualification before doing anything else. 'Asteroid defence' is an established field and you'll probably find your ideas have been addressed already. I know it sounds dismissive or negative and it's not intentional.

you have a degree - and you cannot figure this out by yourself ?

your diploma = worthless

Many academics pre-publish in arxiv (arxiv.org...). It's a good way of preventing a peer review editor for an official publication from snarfing your work and passing it off as his own (had that happen to me).

You'll need to get it peer reviewed.

There are plenty of science journals, however the correct choice would depend on the subject matter.

Your best bet is to forgot the notion of peer reviewed journals - it simply ain't gonna happen. Instead, try expressing your ideas in essays and publishing them to a blog site.

I don't mean to come off as a Negative Nancy, but if you have a degree in an unrelated field, you're going to have an extremely difficult time getting any research reviewed let alone published. Did you at least take any courses related to the topic you wish to publish on? If so, I would contact the professor(s) from any relevant course work and present your ideas to them. As you don't seem to know what steps to take, I have to assume you don't have a graduate degree and have never had to defend a Thesis, which would have led you down the right path as far as people who could assist you. Another consideration is that you want to publish in a field in which you have no credentials and want to submit a paper against people who have in many cases, spent decades working in their respective fields. If you're dead set in this though, try to reach out to people who work within this particular field. You can find names and email addresses on any college or university website and you can also try to submit something through Academia.edu and see where that gets you. Best of luck to you but unfortunately, Ife got to echo the sentiments of Ignorant_Ape. If you've got a degree and you're asking on ATS...

Arxiv requires a reference from at least one existing member and they tend to be post-grad and upwards.

I can't recall any papers on there that weren't authored by people at MSc or PhD level. I only know this because I read a few and have a look at whatever else certain authors have published.

That's why I suggested Academia.edu. It's open source and I believe anyone can still submit papers and research there.

You're right although they require a referee too. It's not rigorous and email requests from total strangers are standard.

Can you do the math?

If you can, lay it all out in a thesis and submit it to any journals that seem a close match. Don't forget to "show your work"!

If you can't do the math, find someone who can and form a collaboration on a joint thesis which you then can submit to a journal. In either case don't forget to copyright!

And finally, if it has to do with space and the physical universe, the math HAS to work. If there isn't any math, it's science fiction, not science.

I would first learn to spell. It's amateur. Even if your ideas are spectacular, they will be ignored if they appear to be the product of an illiterate. That may be unfair but it's a fact of life in academia.

Maybe you could try writing a magazine article?

I honestly don't see that getting to an editors desk let alone being published in a science mag without either the credentials to be back up the position of the thesis or at the very least getting the material into the hands of someone who does have credentials in the related fields to go over the material and vet it ahead of time and then advocate on your behalf. And even going that route, as was discussed earlier in the thread, always copywrite the material before handing it over to anyone!

Vixra is the "anything goes" place. It is fun reading some of the out there ideas (like anti-grav, and proof of the Riemann Hypothesis).

But OP, don't expect them to fall over for you either. A real science paper usually requires that you are one too otherwise they quietly ignore you. Just saying.

Try starting your own site! And learn LaTex. My two pennies worth.

Best of luck! Was not trying to be negative btw, just realistic.

True.

I suspect there are papers on Vixra that have been put there and then never been read, by anybody. So I guess posting your paper there may not help if nobody reads it. Everybody who matters knows the more qualified people use arxiv instead of vixra.

Contact your local university, ask somebody in a relevant department to look at your abstract. Go from there.

Depends what these ideas are... if they are quantitate or qualitative... if they are simply word ideas, im almost certain they have already been discussed. Though, you should definitely try discussing things with experts and try, though do not be surprised if those ideas kinda get shot down

Problem with this approach is that academics are busy people and physicists in particular get inundated with cranks who believe they've solved all of physics's problems (plot twist: they haven't).

So long as your patient, respectful and open to having your ideas criticized then it you should be ok (cranks get attached to ideas and refuse any honest criticism).

Also, +1 on TEOTWAWKIAIFF 's LaTeX suggestion.

i agree with kandisky,its better if you have some qualification,otherwise you will probally become laughing stock
the fact that you are posting this question in a conspiracy site doesnt help either
