Springer Nature is committed to supporting the global response to COVID-19 enabling fast and direct access to the latest available research, evidence, and data.
The need for continued access to research and learning has never been more important. We recognise our role in this and are working with global organisations, such as the World Health Organisation and the initiative from the White House Office of Science and Technology to make all relevant global research, and data, immediately available. We also continue to work directly with teachers, lecturers, librarians, students and institutions to support their work. See more from our CEO, Frank Vrancken Peeters.
So far we have:
- Enabled free access to over 70,000 articles, book chapters, reference works and protocols on our platforms
- Published over 55,000 new COVID-19 articles and supported all researchers in making their underlying experimental data sets available for free and re-use (since the beginning of the pandemic)
- Made available, via Research Square, over 8,700 COVID-19 preprint articles
