I have been working on a few set of ideas, and while I can give references on the introduction, about the general idea, and the problems that my ideas can possibly solve in other fields, but unfortunately for me, the work is a little out of the box, and the main body cannot contain references.
I wanted to know if this is against norms or even considered unusual?
Also, some of the work is very old, for example, Descartes, and Tarski. I was wondering how to get references for that work, and how it could work out, since I am not sure if they ever published papers or how discussion around very old topics tends to go.
The situation is a bit unusual for me, and I want to find the best way to be read and accepted in the community, following all the proper norms, rules and regulations regarding writing a proper academic paper.
The work is all application of informal logic to various other fields. Some of it is philosophical, some of it relates to maths and physics as well. I am just trying to get it read at the moment. I will try to submit it to a journal, but at this point, I am having a hard time finding such a journal.
