After a long period of slow development the quantity of preprint/postprint/eprint servers, disciplines represented, and sheer contentappears to have mushroomed (see Jordan Anaya’s chart), and maybe it truly has. What is going on? What drives the existence of so many distinct servers? Why are so many of them related to specific disciplines?
