Scribd as a Repository for Proposals and Science Docs

Since Nature Precedings has tightened its policies and no longer accepts proposals, I have been looking for some alternative PDF repositories.

I think it is very important to have a convenient way to cite these documents on platforms with third-party timestamps and all the bells and whistles of web2.0 - ratings, comments, easy sharing tools, etc. Open Science is not just about what we are doing but also where we're headed.

Scribd seems to be a good solution. I've posted my last proposal to the Gates foundation there, in addition to the SCIEnCE site.

You can also post them at I created the site because I wanted to provide scholars with an easy way to share their research so one of the most useful features of AcademiaConnect is the ability to self-archive all of your preprint manuscripts, postprint research articles, and dissertations in our Open Access Repositories. By self-archiving your works on AcademiaConnect, you not only provide a permanent location for your scholarly works, but will also facilitate the sharing and discussion of research across all disciplines by helping us create an online storehouse of full-text research articles from every field that can be searched, discussed, and built upon within our discipline specific forums.

Thanks for the tip Marcos. I was already a member - I uploaded it to the chemistry section of AcademiaConnect.
