Dear Andy: It's not that hard. There are Scientific Societies all over the World, that accept, and publish monographs, pertaining to about any field of study of discipline you can think of/...and some you can't think of. I have no idea what your field of endeavor is, but before you go handing something in, please be sure whether or not some one might take your idea....and make several hundred billions of dollars with your idea. It happened right here in America...with a little invention called a "telephone". Two men applied for patents on the EXACT same idea, and device. One guy's paperwork got clocked in a half-day ahead of the other guy..... An now, 125 years later.....we know him as Dr. A. G. Bell. Can you say the name of the other guy ? Lesson learned. Britt.

I would seek out a Ph.D. or graduate student in the field then share your hypothesis (I say hypothesis because what you have is not a well tested conjecture that holds true when tested against a broad range of scenarios multiple times). I don't know what it is but it needs to be published discussed, tested, and hold true against everything that is thrown out it without considerable doubt before it becomes a theory. But anyways ask someone who has extensive knowledge in that field. I warn you to be careful and do not share to much information because unless your discovery is patented then you have no claim over it and therefore someone can legally steal your idea. So make sure he or she is trustworthy and make sure you don't share any important or critical details.

Getting it published is not an easy thing to do. If it has any scientific claims, it first must be submitted to a society for peer review. There, the peers either agree or disagree with your theory based on your data, methods of investigation and interpretation of the results. If your peers generally agree, it then goes to a panel whose job it is to falsify your claim. It is a brutal and merciless process. If it stands the test, it then goes on for publication. If you're trying to make a fortune, then go the entrepreneurial route.
