This guide was created to provide the health care professionals of Johns Hopkins University and Medicine with timely content and resources regarding the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. Navigate this guide using the categories on the left.
Please use your judgment when viewing/using the crowd sourced resources. Information is quickly changing and accuracy is not guaranteed.
As of today, about 13,000 articles about coronaviruses have been published, and less than half are openly available to read (without a paywall). On March 13th, the White House asked the Scholarly Publishing Community to make all COVID-19 papers immediately openly and machine readable. On March 16th, the Wellcome Trust published a list of publishers that have pledged to make coronavirus (COVID-19) content freely available and reusable.
If you support transparent and open access to health and biomedical research, or simply want to access COVID-19 research, here are some resources below.
Download the Unpaywall browser extension to access open access versions of research. The Unpaywall extension allows you to read research for free by clicking the green lock that appears when an open version is available. For questions about scholarly publisher response or open access advocacy, contact the Welch Library.
