Taylor & Francis offers full access to breaking COVID-19 research through new microsite
As a leading publisher of trusted science, technology, medicine, humanities and social sciences research, Taylor & Francis is committed to helping public health authorities, researchers, clinicians and the general public to contain and manage the spread of COVID-19. Our imperative is to enable experts to pool our collective wisdom to combat this disease.
As signatories to NIH's Access to Research initiative, along with the Wellcome Trust's coordinated action on sharing research data and findings relevant to the outbreak, Taylor & Francis has been working with WHO to ensure this content is clearly signposted. Taylor & Francis is also aligning with the OSTP initiative to centralise resources on PubMed, whom they are currently working with to ensure rapid human and machine-readable access where possible to research articles and data through the NLM's Litcovid portal.
Further breaking COVID-19 research including pre-prints is also available through a dedicated F1000Research gateway, to ensure immediate access to the latest research developments.
"The global spread of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 underscores the critical need for intensified collaboration between researchers, public health authorities, clinicians and the general public," says Annie Callanan, CEO of Taylor & Francis. "We all deserve to be empowered with facts and high-quality research that can be trusted and built upon to find solutions."
Taylor & Francis remains committed to supporting global scientific discovery to manage the spread of COVID-19, and will continue to update the microsite as rapidly as possible to enhance the discoverability of new research as it breaks.
