I've recently had a paper accepted to be published in a maths journal. This is my first paper to be published, but the problem is that I currently work outside academia and have no academic affiliation to give them. I do have a PhD in maths, but that ended about 10 years ago. Does anyone have any opinion on what is the best thing to do in this situation? Would a paper by an "independent researcher" (or whatever they would put if I say I have no affiliation) be taken as seriously as one from a university maths department? Or is there some way of obtaining an affiliation to be used to publish papers under? I did have a look through the previous few years of papers published at the journal, and other similar ones, and they were all affiliated to an academic institution.
