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. The e-prints on viXra are grouped into seven broad categories: physics, mathematics, computational science, biology, chemistry, humanities, and other areas.
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. As of 2013 it had over 4000 preprints.
As of May 27, 2015, vixra currently contains 10,682 preprints.
