I have recently published an article in Physics Essays outlining a hypothesis that suggests a novel approach to generating a sustainable fusion reaction that might be tried (see article at http://physicsessays.org/doi/abs/10.4006/0836-1398-26.2.326). Note that a test of the principles underlying this approach may be relatively easy and inexpensive. I would be more than happy to discuss the idea if anyone out there is interested. If so, please contact me (either via the forum or by the contact information provided in article).
I am not a physicist myself, so I cant provide feedback. I am guessing physicist are more busy just to read all the essays available.
But would suggest to post it on a free-access journal such as http://arxiv.org/ just to increase the likelihood of access and feedback.
Thanks for the suggestion, Breakable. Unfortunately, as part of the publication process with this and many other journals, the author signs over the copyright to the publisher. Thus, posting a “free” copy anywhere else or re-publishing elsewhere would be a copyright violation. So I’m facing a challenge with respect to a method of finding the ear of someone who is in a position to test the idea. All suggestions most welcome!
Hi delt0r, yes, the journal may permit me to provide reprints for academic use, but that is quite different from posting on a public website where everyone has access. Normally such a reprint would be a paper copy or link that could be sent to an individual’s email address. At least, that is my understanding of how it works, please correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
Again, I would have no way of confirming that the recipient is from academia. On the other hand, my email information is posted on the “abstract” link for the article, and if I receive an email request from an “.edu” email, that reprint option may be available.
