Question about claiming a new theory to be yours?

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    I didn't know where else to post this, but anyways. Say if I were to come up with a theory, not really a scientific theory, more philosophical and I want to announce it to the public or publish it in a magazine. How would I do this, how could I claim the idea to be mine. I am only 17. Thanks:)

    Well first you'll want to research to make sure the idea hasn't been thought of before. But after that - just email it to the appropriate journals. Making the claim of ownership isn't really an issue, as the paper will have your name on it and will come from your email address!
