Research kept in quarantine

There’s a bunch of virus science that isn’t open

For-profit journal giant Elsevier has created an open-access resource of published research on COVID-19 (CMM January 30) which is good.

But not quite good enough, considering how much research on corona viruses it, and other journal producers have produced.

According to Vincent Larivière, Fei Shu and Cassidy R. Sugimoto, writing for the LSE, there are 13 800 research articles on coronaviruses listed on the Web of Science – and less than half are open access.
