Abstract: The resistive upper critical field, Hc2(T) of cuprates, superconducting spin-ladders, and organic (TMTSF)2X systems is shown to follow a universal nonlinear temperature dependence in a wide range near Tc, while its low-temperature behaviour depends on the chemical formula and sample quality. Hc2(T) is ascribed to the Bose-Einstein condensation field of preformed pairs. The universality originates from the scaling arguments. Exceeding the Pauli paramagnetic limit is explained. Controversy in the determination of Hc2(T) from the kinetic and thermodynamic measurements is resolved in the framework of the charged Bose-gas model with impurity scattering.
