Coronavirus (534) Preprints & research papers on Covid-19

1 May, 2020

Dear Neil & HIFA colleagues,

Given that there's a lot of reference to preprint articles in the media in relation to Covid-19, it was interesting to learn that the AHCJ had held a webinar on the topic yesterday. It seems that the recording of the broadcast may only be open to their members, but I'm giving this link as it links to other articles about preprints and research papers in general during the pandemic that might be of interest to some HIFA members.

Best wishes
