viXra.org is an UK-based non-profit project run by unpaid individuals with an interest in scientific progress. The main server is paid for by advertising and donations. The server for the mirror site is provided by QuantumDream Inc.
It costs about $1 per submitted paper to run viXra. This is good value compared to repositories like arXiv which costs about $8 per paper.
Due to lack of funding we have introduced some advertising (using Google AdSense) to help pay for the site upkeep but this only brings in a little revenue. Some of the rest is made up from donations but there is usually still a shortfall.
We accept donations using the serivces shown here (Paypal and Bitcoin). You should not need a Paypal account to use the Paypal option. The amount you choose to give is in Sterling but you should be able to pay from your accounts in any currency. A donation does not entitle you to any extra services or special treatment. Rules about acceptability of submissions still apply of course, see http://vixra.org/submit. Thanks in advance for any donation.
We are committed to keeping all use of viXra free.
