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.
