We present an analysis of a system of weakly coupled Hubbard chains based on combining an exact study of spectral functions of the uncoupled-chain system with a renormalization group method for the coupled chains. For low values of the onsite repulsion U and of the doping δ, the leading instability is towards a superconducting state. The process includes excited states above a small correlation pseudogap. Similar features appear in extended Hubbard models in the vicinity of commensurate fillings. Our theoretical predictions are consistent with the phase diagram observed in the (TMTTF)2X and (TMTSF)2X series of organic compounds.
