Than the original topic and the views presented in the article, the higher the probability that it will be printed.
Select a publisher that is interested in such topics. Contact the editor via email or phone listed in the output of publications. Find out whether this publishing of articles written at the initiative of the author, and whether they plan the publication of articles of a particular theme. Ask about the requirements for the design of texts, which may vary in different publishing houses.
