ChemRxiv Beta Now Online

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.

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.
