The American Chemical Society (ACS) is among organizations that have announced their intention to establish a preprint similar to arXiv.org established in 1991 for physics. In the announcement for ChemRxiv, the ACS said, "By its nature, peer review can be a trade-off between time and quality. The availability of a chemistry preprint server would provide researchers a speedy mechanism by which to share their results and data, and would, in turn, allow peer reviewers and journal editors to focus their efforts on assessing the scientific accuracy and quality of research articles prior to formal journal publication."
