I've spent ages working out physics based equations and believe they are currently developed to the point at which they are ready for publishing and review. At this point I am both a bit lost and afraid. Lost in that I don't know where to submit to as I do not have ivy league institution backed physicist credentials which I believe that most publications require you to have just to look at your submission. I am afraid, cause I feel that all my work could easily by stolen by others, and slapped their name upon, or in the case of someone taking interest, burried for years upon years before being published. I do not like the idea of giving any publisher copyright control over my own work. I hate the idea that should I ever write a book that I could have no right to use my own article, words, research, etc. Where do I start, or go from here?
