Erin,
You do not have to be "connected" to/with a university to publish a paper in a scientific journal. As PJ said, simply research the journals that seem most appropriate to your subject, find out what their submission guidelines are and then go for it. There are several herpetological journals published that might accept a paper on rough earth snakes. Then, there is always the popular press which are the herp oriented magazines you can find at the newsstand. If your article is published in a magazine they pay YOU! Some journals require that you pay THEM if they accept your article for publication. There is a certain amount of academic prestige associated with the scientific journals. Further, your article will be seen and read by knowledgeable individuals who will critique your research findings and may offer insights/information pertinent to what you are doing. Additionally, if you wish to apply for a professional position as a herpetologist/zoologist/biologist someday, you have the benefit of being "published". Generally speaking, an article published in the popular press does not offer the same credentials later on. If you publishe enough of them, and they are good, then similar benefits can obtain. Most authors publish to share there work with others in their community. I can't remember when I read ANYTHING in the scientific journals about rough earth snakes so maybe you better get busy and submit your article!
