Chemical Preprint Server Being Planned

The American Chemical Society is planning to establish a preprint server (“ChemRxiv”) for the global chemistry community. It is expected that ChemRxiv will follow the established model of arXiv in physics. ACS will cooperate with the Society’s Chemical Abstracts Service and other partners to shape the preprint server as a collaborative endeavor.
