"Paul Ginsparg is Professor of Physics and Information Science at Cornell University, USA. In 1991, he created the arXiv (“The Archive”), a document server for preprints, on which scientific findings are published without review and paywall restrictions. Preprint servers are online archives for scholarly publications which allow the scientific community to discuss and compare research findings immediately, transparently, openly, and globally. They also allow researchers to share original data, computer simulations, and other information. has set the standard for a number of these platforms in almost every scientific field. Today, the portal holds almost two million scientific articles from the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, statistics, electrical engineering, systems science, and economics. Paul Ginsparg has been the driving force behind developing and maintaining the arXiv, pioneering the use of new technologies in automated quality control."
