Can I publish without affiliation ? Now I am not associated with any university and i want to publish one publication . Is there solution of this problem ?

  • @Wrzlprmft that seems exactly right. I should do my homework next time before answering.

You certainly can publish without an official affiliation. One of the advantages of the anonymous peer-reviewing is that reviewers should be concerned only about the content; Not the author information. Even if it's not an anonymous submission, your name and affiliation should have nothing to do with the quality of your submission.

I have seen affiliations like this:

Author Name
Independent Researcher 
author email. 

Some even with only the name and email address.

    Other things I've seen used as affiliation/address (note that some journals use these interchangeably) - employer; street address (for their home, probably); PO box; "J.B. Smith Institute" where JBS is the author... Commented Jun 18, 2016 at 10:11
  • I wouldn't give home address on a paper.
