DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, 6th April, 2020 – The current novel coronavirus crisis (officially known as COVID-19) has disrupted global routines and supply chains. Cities have gone into lockdown, and borders have been closed all around the world. Despite these new barriers and challenges, research and science has become more open.
Academic publishers are taking a collective step to counter these trying times and stand against COVID-19 together.
Soon after the World Health Organisation announced the coronavirus disease a pandemic, many academic publishers are now providing Open Access to research and data on the outbreak. Knowledge E represents and works with most of the world’s top publishing houses including Brill Publishers, British Medical Journal, EBSCO, Elsevier, Karger Publishers, Taylor & Francis and many more. The KnE team is helping share the Open Access research and data collections related to COVID-19 to accelerate global research on the subject.
New information about COVID-19 is being rapidly created and disseminated to help researchers, health care professionals, and the general public stay informed.
