viXra.org is a new site that wants your papers. All of them. Regardless of quality, quantity or sanity, the organizers promise they will post your paper to their site.
For those not up on the debate, viXra is an answer to arXiv.org, the popular physics pre-print server. For those of you who aren’t physicists, arXiv is a place where many researchers post their work in advance of publication. There is no peer review, and the idea is that physicists can discuss their and improve their work in an open setting.
But there is a form of screening at the arXiv. Researchers must prove an academic affiliation in order to post their papers, and a moderator reviews each paper to see that it is of “refereeable” quality. This policy has created problems on at least one occasion: in 2002 a creationist sued the server over his right to post his series of ten papers on the origin of the Universe. More recently, others have alleged bias. Among other things, they accuses arXiv administrators of putting some of the more (how shall we say it) “out there” papers into the less popular “”http://arxiv.org/list/physics.gen-ph/new">general-physics" category.
viXra is an alternative for researchers who feel that they’ve been “blacklisted” from the arXiv. According to PhysicsWorld.com, it was set up by Philip Gibbs, an independent physicist, who was ticked off with the arXiv system. On viXra’s mission page, it says that the website is something of a parody as well as “an experiment to see what kind of scientific work is being excluded by the arXiv.”
So far, here’s what a sampling of what’s gone up on viXra:
