Coronavirus (Covid-2019)

Publisher support for combating COVID-19

STM’s members have acted rapidly and decisively to support the continued global response to the rapid worldwide spread of COVID-19 with immediate access to accurate and validated articles and monographs that the public can trust.

In direct response to the health emergency, publishers provided free access to relevant peer reviewed publications to ensure that throughout the duration of the outbreak, research and data quickly reaches the widest possible audiences. On the 30th January STM reached out to members to coordinate and broaden the wider efforts to make relevant research quickly and freely available. Over the subsequent days and weeks, more than 32,000 articles, chapters and other resources have been made findable and useable in this manner.

This resource page was deployed on the 10th February, whilst throughout the month, publishers worked to continue to identify and improve the use of resources in tandem with world governments and non-governmental organisations. Agreements have been made to ensure that resources are available under terms and in formats that enable machine analysis and reuse. Crossref have also provided assistance to make it easier for researchers to identify, locate, and access content for text mining.

The publishing community is committed to helping combat COVID-19. We continue to offer researchers the full range of publisher systems and solutions to enhance their abilities to address the global health crisis and hope that these provisions will aid the global response and make a difference.
