The open preprint server for the global chemistry community

ChemRxiv is a free submission, distribution, and archive service for unpublished preprints in chemistry and related areas. Introduced in 2017 and now featuring more than 20,000 preprints, ChemRxiv is co-owned and collaboratively managed by the American Chemical Society, the Chinese Chemical Society, the Chemical Society of Japan, the German Chemical Society, and the Royal Society of Chemistry.

By uploading their articles to ChemRxiv, authors can quickly and easily share their work with scientists and colleagues prior to formal peer review. ChemRxiv is openly accessible, with all costs covered by the supporting societies, meaning there are no subscription fees for readers and no submission charges for authors.
