ChemRxiv Preprints

Since the release of the ChemRxiv beta version in 2017, the support and usage of the free archive service for unpublished preprints in chemistry has increased tremendously. Since August 2019 the Chinese Chemical Society and the Chemical Society of Japan became co-owners of ChemRxiv, joining the founding societies the American Chemical Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the German Chemical Society.

Just recently the 10.000th preprint article has been uploaded to the archive. The most prevalent topics include:

  • computational chemistry (2911 entries)
  • organic chemistry (2142 entries)
  • physical chemistry (2139 enties)

and many more…

Here are some useful tips in case you want to submit your preprint!

The Software Heritage initiative is building an archive of software source code. It aims to preserve and share all software that is publicly available in source code form and provides unique identifiers. More than five billion files from more than 88 million projects are available up to now.

The Software Heritage was founded by the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation Inria. The UNESCO supports the project and some private companies funds it.
