arXiv is a website that collects preprints of papers on physics, mathematics, computer science and biology. As of October 2008, the website has collected more than 500,000 preprints, and it is increasing at a rate of about 5,000 per month.
arXiv was founded in 1991 by physicist Paul Kingsbag. Initially, the task of the website was to collect preprints of physics papers, and then expanded to acquire other fields such as astronomy and mathematics. Kingsbarger won the 2002 MacArthur Award for this website.
Currently, arXiv articles are divided into seven categories: physics, mathematics, nonlinear science, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, and statistics. There are several sub-categories under each category. For example, under physics: astrophysics, condensed matter physics, general relativity and quantum cosmology, high-energy physics experiments, high-energy physics grid points, high-energy physics phenomenology, high-energy physics theory, mathematical physics, nuclear physics experiment, nuclear physics theory, General physics, quantum physics.
Today, arXiv has approximately 700,000 papers and receives approximately 75,000 papers each year. Approximately 400,000 unique viewers download approximately 1 million papers every week.
