viXra is an electronic e-print archive set up by independent physicist Phil Gibbs as an alternative to the dominant arXiv service operated by Cornell University.

Description[edit]

The viXra covers science and mathematics and caters for the whole scientific community. It accepts submissions without requiring authors to have an academic affiliation and without any threshold for quality.[1] The e-prints on viXra are grouped into seven broad categories: physics, mathematics, computational science, biology, chemistry, humanities, and other areas.[2]

Gibbs' original motivation for starting the archive was to cater for researchers who believed that their preprints had been unfairly rejected or reclassified by the arXiv moderators.[3]
