viXra to the rescue

Being unable to post the new paper to arXiv, I have had to resort using to viXra as a repository. This is very much a second best option as:

  • viXra has very little visibility or credibility in the academic community
  • it is not indexed by Google Scholar
  • it contains many crackpot postings that have only a passing resemblance to proper science

Nevertheless, it does offer authors the ability to register their publications in a date stamped repository, thus establishing intellectual property precedence. Now that it is registered, I am at least able to cite it in any future papers relating the this topic.
