Generally, no, scholars don't get paid for publishing their work in academic journals. But, having your work published can reap all kinds of academic rewards.
You may want to speak with the professor who suggested you submit your article for publication - to find out what journals s/he thinks would be appropriate for your work.
You could also browse some journals here: http://www.doaj.org/
AND look up articles on your topic to see what journals people have published in - you can use the Easysearch button to search by keyword here: http://library.laverne.edu/
