Zenodo is an open data repository, developed and operated by CERN.
It is an catch-all repository, that welcomes research from all over the world, and from every discipline. Zenodo does not impose any requirements on format, size, access restrictions or licence. A digital object identifier (DOI) is automatically assigned to all Zenodo files and it is integrated into reporting for research funded by the European Commission.

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.
