The ChemRxiv preprint server is open for submissions. It is now available in a fully functioning beta version. The American Chemical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry and German Chemical Society (GDCh), as well as other not-for-profit groups and scientific publishers, gave support to create a place for chemists to share early results and data before formal peer review.
Authors can submit preprints in various file formats that will automatically assigned with a digital object identifier. ChemRxiv will also link the final published version of articles with preprints.
Elsevier launched its own chemistry preprint server named Chemistry Research Network (ChemRN) in August, too.
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.

The American Chemical Society has launched a new Open Access journal named ACS Omega. It is accepting manuscripts now, so that the first articles will be published in summer.
ACS Omega is a multidisciplinary, online journal. Peer-reviewed open access articles shall be published rapidly.
About the journal: http://pubs.acs.org/journal/acsodf
Since September 2015 provides the American Chemical Society their authors the fully open access journal ACS Central Science. It is a multidisciplinary and highly selective journal, which is publishing the most important advances in chemistry. The journal is free to publish and free to read.
ACS Central Science
The American Chemical Society offers a new program for authors: ACS Author Rewards. Each corresponding author gets for each article published during 2014 an ACS Author Rewards credit (two $750 credits for a total value of $1500). The credits may be used to fund any ACS AuthorChoice option within the next three years (2015-2017).
