# How do I publish a physical constant [closed]

I think what i've found is a physical constant that is a physical quantity, universal in nature and constant in time.

but It contrasted with a mathematical constant, which is a fixed mathematical numerical value and does not directly involve any physical measurement.

1. Is it really necessary to consider fixed numerical value?

2. How do I publish a physical constant (that It contrasted with a mathematical constant)?

Huh? Are you saying that you've found a constant of motion of a particular physical system? –  Jerry Schirmer Feb 19 '13 at 23:57
@Jerry Schirmer sounds crazy but yes, my abstract was Accepted. (including summary of my works) –  Neo Feb 20 '13 at 0:02

You write a paper and send it to a reputable journal.

Then the reviewers have a go at it. Unless the editor rejects it on his or her own discretion.

If your paper is not based on solid physics and written in a language compatible with physics as we know it your odds are very, very bad.

I've submit it in to a physics conference [...]

Be aware that conferences contributions are generally not peer reviewed publications and unless you were an invited speaker they carry approximately no weight.

Indeed there are persistent rumors that some conferences accept certain papers for comic relief.

"You write a paper and send it to a reputable journal." The entire article can be one page, it doesn't make any problem? –  Neo Feb 20 '13 at 0:08
No. Short articles are accepted by very nearly every journal. Some, such as Physical Review Letters specialize in short articles (thought PRL likes them to be in rapidly advancing fields). –  dmckee Feb 20 '13 at 0:11
"as we no it your odds are very, very bad." :D Yes i know –  Neo Feb 20 '13 at 0:11
+1 for "rumors that conferences accept certain papers for comic relief." –  c.p. Feb 20 '13 at 0:17
Look the fine structure constant, $\alpha(k \to 0)$, is a number. That's not a problem. On the other hand, there are more cranks and crackpots out there than under-appreciated geniuses. You might want to check that you're in the latter category at some point. –  dmckee Feb 20 '13 at 0:19
