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.



Data Sharing            

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.

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.

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.
