I am an undergrad student, and the paper writing is not involved in curricula here. Nobody even talks about it seriously at undergraduate level at my place.
I have derived some conventions/names which to me seems that they are provide a lot of convenience in illustrations/communications. Admittedly, these are just that - notations. No drastic new formula, or framework or anything like that. But their appeal feels a lot to me. I have searched over the internet, and they don't seem to be already known.
The conventions for ease in illustrations are in the field of chemistry. And the names are in mathematics which bleed a lot into physics too.
I want to know - is this kind of stuff publishable? I mean yes, in the past, it has been. Like we have lots of projections in chemistry, and same for maths. But is it so in the current times too, especially that those concerned fields are already mature enough?
And what approach to take for articles for such notational improvements?
By trying to pre-publishing (or whatever apt process it is), I want to mainly fulfill 3 goals:
- get those out in public in a formal manner and maybe receive feedback (or in worse case backlash lol)
- get my paws wet with the general procedure of publishing
- move on in life from that stuff (ticking it off from the mental to-do list). I am holding onto these over myself for over a year now, and I really want it to reach a definite conclusion.
