ProQuest built this database in response to the rapidly growing need for authoritative content related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re working together with institutions all over the world to offer support as they navigate through the coronavirus pandemic, and this launch of the Coronavirus Research Database is the latest in a series of programs to help librarians, faculty and students.
The database aggregates open content from ProQuest with content made freely available by members of the International Association of STM Publishers. Notable publishers contributing to the Coronavirus Research Database include Public Library of Science, BioMed Central, MDPI AG, Springer Nature Publisher Group, Taylor & Francis and The BMJ. Preprint servers include arXiv.org and BioRxiv.
