# Compensated for new discoveries in quantum physics?

Is it possible to make money publishing a Physics Research Paper?

Why should one disclose advance quantum research and development to the physics community without compensation? I have been working, part time, for 12 years and would like to be compensated for new discoveries in quantum physics?

Thank You

You're supposed to be doing this for the love of learning. You want money? Patent what you've got, or a "concept" application of what you've got --- takes money, lawyers, and time.

It's possible to make money doing physics research, one aspect of which is generally publishing results in the open literature. As a rule, however, publishing a paper doesn't get you paid.

Why should anyone compensate you without having the opportunity to evaluate your research?

If you think you've produced results that are worth publishing, then the proper course of action is to submit them to peer-reviewed journals. If the results and ideas are worthwhile, they'll get through peer review and be published so that the professional scientific community can evaluate them. If the paper is really really good, it might open up employment opportunities in research science.

Which on-line “peer-reviewed journal” is the best for Physics, Quantum Mechanics?
For example I will be writing a paper concerning Energy. I will be comparing quantum mechanics with astrophysics schemes. The research paper will prove that a star does not rotate on angular momentum alone. The paper will disclose the quantum transfers of energy (efficiency).
Thank You

You DO get money for publishing research: if you work as a physicist you generally want to get paid, and in order for someone to pay you they generally want you to produce something; and as a scientist the "product" you produce is -generally- publications.
Moreover, having a good publication record is usually a pre-requisite for progressing in your career, and higher level positions are generally better paid

I'm going to be charitable and tell you right now that you probably don't have a very good understanding of angular momentum. Angular momentum doesn't cause things to rotate; angular momentum is a property of rotating bodies. (Of course, transfer of angular momentum between two bodies can change their rotation rates.) Your statement is kind of like saying "Cars don't drive on speed alone." It doesn't really make much sense.

No.

Punishing a scientific paper paper does not give money to the authors.

Since I guess this thread will continue, it is very rare that one gets paid for publishing a paper. It happens - one journal that publishes review papers gives the authors of order $1000 to put together a paper. This works out to less than minimum wage. It's also kind of pointless - if one has the energy and desire to put together a review paper (which takes 100's of hours of work)$1000 won't matter. If one doesn't, \$1000 won't matter either.
