Consider an undergrad student (who wishes to dive into STEM research) in an obscure university in an obscure town who has a few ideas which he converts into a well documented article. All of this by learning completely on his own. He has no faculty within his institute (or locality) to turn to (they aren't as active in research) for help.
Where should such students/learners try to get comments/criticism on their work?
- Sending it out to publishing is not a good idea because it will get rejected with cliched answers and will rarely help the candidate improve his work.
- Stackexchange/Quora/Reddit etc. are great for small answers but it is too much to ask to read and rate someone's work
- One can send out mails but Professors/Grad Students/Researchers in the field might not have the time to reply to such mails. Further, if the work is fundamentally flawed, the student might never get replies.
- Any other repository site (ArXiv?) might cause the paper to be drowned by more successful ones and the student might never get comments.
What can he do?
