    Which publications are best to contact? What are their requirements usually? How hard is it to submit something to them?

    You can simply google "top physics journals" or something like that to get a list of physics journals.

    Submission to journals is relatively easy: you go to their web site and follow the instructions they give for submitting articles.

    It rather depends on the subject.

    You simply need to mail a copy of a proposed paper to an editor or communicate with the editor elelctronically.

    I suggest that if you want to be taken seriously that you make very sure that you have your ducks in a row and fully justify any assertions that you may make. The journals are designed for professionals to put forth work of professional research quality. A good paper will be accepted. A not-so-good paper may receive rather abrupt treatment.

    It would be a good idea to READ some of the publications in a journal before you submit a paper to them. You will want to submit to a journal that has published other relevant material, and therefore that has some interest in the particular subject that you have chosen.

    These days most drafts are first recorded in electronic format in Arxiv. You should check that out. http://front.math.ucdavis.edu/
