Elsevier: ‘Coronavirus Information Centre’ (free)

The welfare of you and your colleagues remains paramount to Elsevier during COVID-19. We’re committed to supporting institutions that have researchers and information professionals working remotely during location closures.

We have prepared an information center with expert, curated, free-to-access information on COVID-19 for the research and healthcare communities community.  For the latest clinical information, research articles and patient information, please visit our Coronavirus Information Center.

To help you maintain remote access to Elsevier solutions such as ScienceDirect, Scopus and Reaxys, we’ve prepared this guide: See how to set up remote access. The guide covers the three options: federated access using Shibboleth or OpenAthens; email domain confirmation; and institutional VPNs and proxy servers. We’re here to help researchers efficiently access information regardless of where they’re working.

Check out the infographic: global research trends in infectious disease trends, top research orgs and the impact of outbreaks:

There is an upcoming webinar on March 30th (and then on demand). Over the past two decades, the world has faced several infectious disease outbreaks. Ebola, Influenza A (H1N1), SARS, MERS, Zika virus and, most recently, COVID-19, have had a massive global impact in terms of economic disruption, strain on local and global public health resources and, above all, human health.

Dr. Bamini Jayabalasingham explains how the research was conducted to uncover trends in outbreaks research, the various governmental bodies involved and the ways to identify health security research.

Senior Product Manager Chris James will show practical examples of how SciVal and Scopus were used to analyze scholarly output, trending topics and top research organizations working to strengthen our understanding of infectious disease outbreaks.
