    Hi Farhad70,

    There might be a small language issue with your question. Do you mean you have done some research and are looking for an appropriate journal to submit to?

    If so, this is a question you really need to be talking over with your advisor. As a general approach you can start with the journals that you have cited most frequently in your work and the ones that you read on a regular basis and then narrow the list by which one publishes the most similar articles.

    Sorry for my language.

    I have done some research and i am looking for an appropriate journal to submit to.

    I dont have any advisor and my work is very basic and no one talk about that in many years. I'm looking for an appropriate journal about special relativity.
    I have no one to help me in my country and i need physics forum's members to help me.
    If you help me ...

    We have frequent question of this nature, and it always rings my dubious bells each time I see it.

    Here's the issue. One typically has to read A LOT of papers when one is doing research work. Otherwise, how would one knows if what one is working on is new, valid, correct, incorrect, not interesting, etc...etc. One must also already knows how to (i) write a proper paper and (ii) be aware of all the various journals out there in that particular field. This is because one has read all of these papers and has paid attention to where they were published.

    Thus, when you ask a question like this, it creates something of a puzzle to me on whether you really have studied the ample amount of papers that have already been published in whatever area that you are "researching", and whether you have paid any attention to where those papers have been published. After all, you DO have references to cite in this "paper" that you intend to publish, don't you?

    I'm grateful for your answer.

    I studied Michael Faraday's experimental researches, Maxwell's works, Oliver Heaviside's works, Lorentz's work and around three thousands pages for my research.
    These works published in many years ago.

    Anyway, I'm grateful for your help.
    P.S : Whatever more and more I walk this road, I'm sure that no one can realize my idea and my work.

    Does that mean that you have zero references from within the last century? Do you think that the field hasn't advanced at all since then?

    I dont have any references from 20 & 21 century.
