- ArXiv (phys+math preprints): arxiv.org | xxx.lanl.gov | front.math.ucdavis.edu – Cornell University
- ViXra.org – http://vixra.org/ – Variety of scientific sounding papers that were denied publishing on arXiv. Out of 4 papers I have read (earlier today) from this archive, one sounds a completely legitimate (“A Very Brief Introduction to Clifford Algebra” by Stephen Crowley) of them and remaining three display various hallmarks of non-science (“pseudo-science”). Loking though the titles and abstracts of numerous other papers, I conclude that there could be some gems among these, but they are mainly coals.
*ViXra.org is an e-print archive set up as an alternative to the popular arXiv.org service owned by Cornell University. It has been founded by scientists who find they are unable to submit their articles to arXiv.org because of Cornell University’s policy of endorsements and moderation designed to filter out e-prints that they consider inappropriate.*

ViXra is an open repository for new scientific articles. It does not endorse e-prints accepted on its website, neither does it review them against criteria such as correctness or author’s credentials.
