Best journal to publish a research in classical mechanics?

  1. Jan 23, 2016 #1
    I think I have an interesting thing to say on the foundation of classical mechanics and I wonder what would be the best journals to submit a work on that topic.

    The best journal to publish in is probably the journal you are already reading to keep up with the developments in the field.

    You can also check your references: where did they get published?

    That makes a lot of sense.

    Besides the original articles from the 30's, and a couple of books my main references are from physical review and a thesis on Arxiv. Physical review was already the journal I had in mind, but I would like to have other options in case I get rejected there.

    You don't need to know what to do if PRE rejects you until they actually do - and that takes months.

    Also, if you are rejected, pay close attention to the comments of the referee. They might just tell you whether it is even worth submitting it to a different journal.

    There is always a high chance that your idea is not novel. Having only a few journals as your background makes that chance much larger.
