This question already has an answer here:
I am a recent masters grad from a US institution as a foreign student. As of now I have no university affiliation. My work as a grad student was mainly research oriented. Hence now looking for a job seems redundant as many research jobs in US require US citizenship or field experience. So as a researcher my options are limited. Nevertheless I am working on a theoretical paper. The question is
- What are my options at this point considering an academic career where I could become a teacher/lecturer/professor or academician carrying out scientific work.
- If I have a paper ready how do i publish it in a good journal with a decent impact factor without a university affiliation.
I could not find published research in reputed journals by any independent scholars.
