AIP Publishing

Access to articles on Scitation.org made available to registered users without a subscription to facilitate off-campus access during COVID-19 pandemic.

50+ Articles related to infectious diseases, epidemics, computational epidemiology, and pendemics are free to read.

American Association for the Advancement of Science AAASThe American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Science family of journals are applying formidable resources to keep the scientific community and the public well informed on the coronavirus pandemic.

Science, published by AAAS, has shared research findings and made data swiftly available over recent weeks to spur scientific advances, outline public health opportunities to slow the spread of COVID-19, and help protect the wellbeing of people across the globe.

The journal has accelerated its publishing practices governing the release of research papers on coronavirus and urged scientists to post their submitted studies on preprint sites, all the while preserving the peer-review process to ensure the validity of the research published in the journals.

In addition, Science and AAAS are working to ensure infectious disease researchers retain access to safe laboratories to facilitate their COVID-19 research and to keep the research community, policymakers and the public updated through quick-turnaround teleconferences, Facebook Live events and other outreach efforts based on the latest research and news published in Science.

Holden Thorp, editor-in-chief of Science, has been seeing to it that Science has coronavirus research papers reviewed as quickly as possible, promptly shares first release articles and makes them free to all. In addition, the News from Science team has been sharing regular updates on the latest research and reports from around the world. “Our top news reporters have become go-to sources for important news on the virus,” Thorp said. “And our Insights section is publishing commentary and ideas as quickly as we can.”

In a March 17 editorial, “Time to Pull Together,” Thorp called on institutions to limit their research work to the virus as well as clinical care and public health communications and urged fellow scientists to help virus researchers to ease challenges they are encountering such as finding childcare.

The journal Science Translational Medicine also published an editorial authored by experts on epidemiology, mathematics and two National Institutes of Health officials who called for prioritizing research on COVID-19 before focusing on the “confirmed cases and their geospatial spread.”
American Chemical SocietyIn light of the current outbreak of a novel coronavirus (2019–nCoV), ACS Publications would like to share this Virtual Issue that features a collection of articles on coronavirus research. Chemistry has a key role to play in understanding everything from viral structure to pathogenesis, isolation of vaccines and therapies, as well as in the development of materials and techniques used by basic researchers, virologists and clinicians. This Virtual Issue aims to provide a brief overview of the important contributions of chemistry to understanding and controlling the spread of coronaviruses and includes articles from ACS Infectious Diseases, ACS Chemical Biology, Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, Biochemistry, Chemical Reviews, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces as well as the preprint server ChemRxiv. We hope the research contained in this Virtual Issue will provide you with important insight into challenges and approaches in virus research.
American Economic AssociationIn these uncertain times, some faculty and their students may not have access to their institution's print-only subscription to the AEA journals. To ensure access as academic semesters and various student projects conclude, the Association is making its available journal content open access on the AEA website through June 30, 2020. We thank you for your support as a member of the Association and hope that you will share this announcement with your colleagues and students who may not currently have online access through their institutional libraries. Please visit the American Economic Association website to access the journals.
American Geosciences InstituteThe American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is providing free individual access to its Glossary of Geology Online Service through June 30, 2020 in order to assist students, educators and other geoscience professionals who may be forced to sequester at home due to the spread of COVID-19.

Please be assured that the editors and staff of the APS journals will continue to assist you with your manuscripts and to provide excellent member/customer care.


For our authors who may need more time to complete their writing, our editors will provide extensions for submitting commissioned manuscripts and revisions. Our editors will also work with you to determine how best to address reviewer comments if new laboratory experiments are on hold.


For our reviewers, deadlines for submitting peer reviews have been extended to afford you more time to complete your assessment. Likewise, if you are now unable to complete a recently accepted review, please let us know.


For our readers, articles discussing Covid‐19, coronavirus, SARS and other related research will be freely accessible as part of our Coronavirus‐related Collection (https://journals.physiology.org/covid19). The collection will continue to grow as relevant content is identified and new contributions on these topics are accepted.


Please know that the editors and staff of the APS journals will work diligently to reduce barriers to submission, revision and publication while still publishing the high‐quality research that you expect from our journals.

EDP SciencesIn light of the COVID-19 pandemic, as a publisher which has always put the academic community at the forefront of everything we do, we have decided to open our journals content from 2018-2020 so it is freely available for all to read*.
The reasons for this are two-fold:
  1. Medical research – ensuring there is nothing within our pay-walled content that could be useful for current research related to the crisis.
  2. To support the many thousands of academics and researchers who are now confined to working from home and may not have easy access to key research articles from their institutions.
Agnès Henri, Managing Director, EDP Sciences, said: “The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is creating huge challenges for us all in the scholarly community. We know access to content will be severely disrupted during this time which is why we want to offer our support by freeing up our content to researchers during this extraordinary time.”
For nearly 10 years, EDP Sciences has actively supported open access (OA) and the dissemination of science through measures including:
  • Publishing a number of fully OA journals; 52% of articles published in 2019 were open access
  • Helping journals to transition to open access and support the principles of open science (open access, open peer review, open data and open code)
  • Offering generous policies regarding embargo of subscription content
  • Not requiring any embargos for depositing pre-prints into institutional and subject repositories
  • Negotiating a number of transformative agreements to support the transition from subscription models to OA
  • Adopting and developing a number of OA initiatives including Subscribe to Open and Liberty APCs
  • Supporting the waiver of OA fees through our Research4Life programme
  • Supporting a number of organisations which champion open access including OA Switchboard, the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), ScienceOpen and OASPA
  • Signing the Wellcome coordinated statement on sharing research data and findings relevant to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

Content will initially be made available from 30 March until the end of June 2020. We will continually monitor the situation and question any activity which may indicate abuse of the initiative. Copyright on individual articles will remain unchanged.

A few exceptions remain:

  • Journals we publish on behalf of partners from whom we have not yet received permission; these will be added as and when we receive authorisation
  • Journals we do not own for which we simply host content
ElsevierElsevier gives full access to its content on its COVID-19 Information Center for PubMed Central and other public health databases to accelerate fight against coronavirus

Hoopla (Midwest Tape)Many libraries are going to be closed to the public for at least two weeks. There is a chance this could extend well beyond two weeks. As libraries cope with supplying patrons with digital content, we approached Midwest Tape about arranging for temporary Hoopla contracts for libraries (particularly public libraries) who have never used Hoopla in the past but would like to divert financial resources to it while they are not making physical material purchases.

The Hoopla implementation/rollout period would also be expedited. The only downside here is that subscribing libraries would not receive a physical marketing kit to distribute to patrons at launch.

Contracts would be for 6 months instead of the customary 24, but libraries can cancel at any time with 60-days' notice.

Live classes may shift to Lumen Waymaker or OHM courseware at no cost for the remainder of the term. For faculty members seeking a well-designed digital alternative or supplement to their current textbook, Lumen courseware may be a good fit. Course set-up is simple, and faculty can be ready to teach the same day they make the change. We also provide free services to support a successful transition. Learn More.
To support professional development, we’re introducing a series of short videos about effective digital teaching and learning using Lumen courseware. We’ll begin sharing them later this week on Lumen’s blog.

Topics include:

  • Setting up your course in the LMS
  • Engaging students in virtual environments
  • Staying connected to students at a distance
  • Helping students become self-directed learners
  • And more!
Lumen’s outstanding Support Team is available to assist with any needs. Reach out with support needs and general questions, including help for instructional designers, LMS administrators and others working with faculty to switch modalities using our courseware. Send a message to support@lumenlearning.com or schedule an Office Hours appointment for live virtual support.
Lumen Community Slack can connect you with the Lumen Team, as well as faculty using Lumen courseware and other members of our community. Use this form to request an invitation to this collaboration tool.
Please reach out if the Lumen Team may be of help in any way possible during this period.

Project MUSE

Project MUSE is pleased to support its participating publishers in making scholarly content temporarily available for free on their platform. MUSE expects to announce additional participants and will continually update the list of publishers offering free access to content.

As the modern world faces an unprecedented crisis in the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to put into context each day’s events and how they will reverberate for years to come. Over the last few weeks, Project MUSE has been working closely with participating non-profit publishers who have graciously offered to make their scholarly content temporarily available for free on our platform. We are amazed at the depth and breadth of interdisciplinary content that is now free to read for anyone who visits Project MUSE.

"MUSE in Focus: Contextualizing Pandemic" is a small sampling of temporarily free scholarship from Project MUSE publishers on the broad topic of pandemic and its effects throughout history, in culture, and on humanity as a whole. We hope that bringing these pieces together will help to bring historical and cultural context to the current crisis, so that we may look to the knowledge of the past to guide us forward.

We envision this cross section as a place for scholars and generally interested readers alike to begin learning more. We also encourage readers to explore Project MUSE for additional relevant content.

More than 80 of MUSE's participating publishers have temporarily made all or some of their content freely available on the Project MUSE platform, in response to the crucial need for remote access to reliable, vetted teaching and research materials during the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. Over 25,000 books and 300 journals are now available to any user worldwide, with no restrictions on access or usage. MUSE has also made available tools to help libraries with discovery of the free resources.

"MUSE in Focus: Contextualizing Pandemic" follows on the August 2019 release of "MUSE in Focus: Addressing Gun Violence," a selection of scholarship from Project MUSE publishers on gun violence, its effect throughout the culture, and its possible solutions, developed to inform policymakers and educate researchers and other concerned citizens. When appropriate, we may offer additional MUSE in Focus compilations, where trusted scholarly content from our participating publishers may contribute historical, cultural, and social context to current events and issues on global, national, and local scales.

ProQuest

Research Companion is Open to all Students and Educators Through June 30

All schools, colleges and universities can temporarily access key components in Research Companion, a multimedia resource that helps students develop information literacy and critical-thinking skills.

ProQuest has made library databases and other educational resources available to universities and schools as they navigate the transition to distance learning. While having remote access to library content is essential for online programs, so is knowing how to properly use that content.

That’s why ProQuest is temporarily opening up access to key components of Research Companion, a resource that helps high school, college and undergraduate university students develop the crucial critical thinking and information literacy skills they need to do scholarly research. Schools who don’t currently subscribe to Research Companion can access video modules and assessment tools from the product at no cost through June 30. Users will get access to 10 easy-to-navigate multimedia learning modules that answer questions such as How do I choose a topic? Where do I find information? and How do I evaluate sources? These modules include nearly 100 videos, assessment questions and other tools designed to walk users through the scholarly research process.
