If you're submitting information for an article, and you have no institution affiliation, what should you use? I was asked for an address and all I have is an home address. That seems a bit weird to use, however.
I did a quick search to see what other independent researchers do for Nature journals, which include an author address.Specifically, I searched Google for
site:nature.com "author details" "independent researcher"
I found that authors who are independent researchers sometimes list just their city for their address, or
Independent researcher, City, Country
Based on some previous answers, it seems that you may pay a price for not having a university affiliation. But what are you going to do? Invent an address? Maybe you could create a consulting company (which should be registered if you ever plan to derive any income from it). That line of "ClearBlue Solutions" thrown into your home address may just do the trick.
