Coronaviruses, COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2

A collection of resources around coronaviruses and the novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

Super collection Statistics

Collection details

The current global outbreak of a novel coronavirus COVID-19 has resulted in great volumes of research as the scientific and medical communities fight to understand this new threat and develop strategies control it. Scholarly publishers around the world have collected together relevant research and made it freely accessible to researchers and concerned citizens to support this work. On ScienceOpen we have begun to gather publisher collections of coronavirus literature together with a daily update of new preprints and articles in this super collection to highlight the carefully vetted publications produced by some of the world’s top academic publishers.

The ScienceOpen platform allows you to search within this growing resource, filter by preprint or open access, sort by date, citation number or Altmetric score. Researchers can share with one click, recommend or review articles to help us all improve this growing body of knowledge.

If you would like to include your research in the ScienceOpen collection contact Stephanie Dawson ( for more information.
