Coronavirus (277) Downloadable database of COVID-19 research articles

31 March, 2020

Hi everyone,

The Stephen B. Thacker CDC Library is collecting COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus) research articles and compiling them into an easily accessible and downloadable database to help researchers find the latest COVID-19 research.

This database is updated every day, Monday through Friday, by systematically searching various bibliographic databases and hand searching selected grey literature sources including preprints from bioRxiv, medRxiv, chemRxiv, and SSRN. The methodology is posted on the website.

You can search the database of citations by author, keyword (in title, author, abstract, subject headings fields), journal, or abstract when available. DOI, PMID, and URL links are included when available.

It will be posted in RIS and Excel format but if you need another format please let me know and I would be happy to provide it. I would also be happy to hear comments and suggestions for additional databases or modifications to the search strategy.

I hope it helps!

All the best,

Martha Knuth, MLIS
