Hello, I've recently discovered my own proof of the irrationality of √2, and haven't found anything similar online. Obviously, it's nothing too revolutionary, but It would be kinda cool to get it published. Unfortunately, I'm a teenage amateur in the field and have a limited understanding of who I should reach out to. I was thinking you guys could help me out by suggesting math journals that might be interested in this sort of thing. The proof isn't too long and could be understood by a sixth grader.

Periodicals  Mathematical Association of America You can publish online at Arxiv, which I gather is taken seriously, or Vixra, which isn't. https://arxiv.org/ viXra.org open ePrint archive Sorry I can't suggest any specific journals. If you post it here you'll still have your priority and we can all chew it over. You could try us out as an editorial board Last edited by Maschke; June 19th, 2017 at 12:48 PM.

Would it be fine if I did all of the above in that exact order?

Edit: Wow, they make my field a toplevel heading along with archaeology whereas the rest of the rest of the humanities and social sciences are cramped under the header 'Social Science'... that's a first. Usually we're just ignored... Last edited by 123qwerty; June 19th, 2017 at 07:02 PM.
