The Lancet COVID-19 Resource Centre
To assist health workers and researchers working under challenging conditions to bring this outbreak to a close, The Lancet has created a Coronavirus Resource Centre. This resource brings together new 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) content from across The Lancet journals as it is published.
Kaggle: COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19)
A free resource of over 44,000 scholarly articles, including over 29,000 with full text, about COVID-19 and the coronavirus family of viruses for use by the global research community.
This dataset is intended to mobilize researchers to apply recent advances in natural language processing to generate new insights in support of the fight against this infectious disease. The corpus will be updated weekly as new research is published in peer-reviewed publications and archival services like bioRxiv, medRxiv, and others.
Includes CoViz: a tool for exploring associations between concepts appearing in CORD-19.
EMBL COVID-19 Data Portal
The COVID-19 Data Portal brings together relevant datasets for sharing and analysis in an effort to accelerate coronavirus research. It enables researchers to upload, access and analyse COVID-19 related reference data and specialist datasets as part of the wider European COVID-19 Data Platform.
Our World in Data: Coronavirus Statistics and Research
Detailed maps and graphs tracking confirmed cases, deaths, testing for COVID-19, and more. Updated daily with the latest figures from around the world.
Oxford COVID-19 Evidence Service
Rapid reviews of primary care questions relating to the coronavirus pandemic, updated regularly.
Oxford COVID-19 Government Response Tracker
Governments are taking a wide range of measures to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak. We aim to track and compare worldwide government responses to the coronavirus rigorously and consistently. Systematic information on which measures governments take, and when, can help us understand the responses in a consistent way, aiding efforts to fight the pandemic. The team in Oxford collects information on common policy responses, scores the stringency of such measures, and aggregates these into a Stringency Index.
GloPID-R: List of global funding opportunities
GloPID-R is a global alliance of international research funding organisations investing in preparedness and response to epidemics. On this site, GloPID-R keeps a regularly updated list of research funding opportunities from around the world on COVID-19.
Global Research Council: COVID-19 Library
The library contains a collection of informative websites, funding information, and publications which are closely related to GRC activities, for example on open access, peer review and research integrity.
Ongoing Research Efforts
COVID-19 Research Project Tracker by UKCDR & GloPID-R
UKCDR and GloPID-R have developed a live database of funded research projects from around the world on COVID-19 that will help funders and researchers identify gaps and opportunities and inform future research investments or coordination needs.

Report: Coronavirus Pandemic – Sustainable Ways to Overcome the Crisis
The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has had an immense impact on all areas of our society. In light of the resulting widespread uncertainty, science bears a great responsibility – it must analyse all available knowledge and the changing data in order to provide useful recommendations for a course of action within this highly dynamic situation. This statement from the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina addresses the psychological, social, legal, educational and economic aspects of the pandemic, leading to a number of recommendations.
