UCL COVID-19 Collection—An interactive showcase of COVID-19 related research from the University College London

UCL COVID-19 Collection benefits authors, publishers, and users

The global pandemic has elicited a resounding response from the academic community in terms of research regarding the novel coronavirus disease. From the onset, ScienceOpen has been working with publishers and researchers to create COVID-19 resources that help organize the massive amount of research being published.  

Our most recent COVID-19 Collection has been created with the University College London library where we have made a collection indexing all UCL research related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This collection is automatically updated by pulling in records from the institutional repository UCL Discovery and affiliation metadata from records aggregated by the ScienceOpen platform. The automated setup easily manages the stream of new COVID-19 material being published and opens it up for exploration and interaction. In just the last week, there were 35 new publications added to the collection. Additional benefits of having all of the UCL published research relating to COVID-19 in one place is that it gives users easy and flexible tools for search and discovery such as changing the sort order from number of citations, AltmetricTM score or date. Users searching the contents of the collection, can narrow the number of articles in the collection by specific journals, publishers, or overlapping collections on the ScienceOpen platform. Thus, a user would be able to see publications that also appear in the Wiley: Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 and or in the UCL Press special issue Special series on COVID-19 interactions with our Environment collections.  This encourages users to browse the content and supports easy discovery of related research. Follow the UCL COVID-19 Collection for updates on new content or interactions!

COVID-19 resources on ScienceOpen: Find and share research outputs

Collection on COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2 research

ScienceOpen has released an automatically updating Collection on the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), currently integrating over 500 articles. In order to speed up the research cycle, articles that have not yet undergone peer review (flagged as “preprint“) are included and clearly flagged. This Collection is a go-to resource for science on this new disease, as content from many publishers and authors can be found on a single landing page and filtered using our search and discovery tools.

Thank you for a successful 2019!

As the year draws to a close, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our users, editors, publishers and supporters for a successful 2019.

Cheers!

This has been a year of big growth – we hit 60 million publication records, all linked and contextualized in our citation graph. That adds up to a lot of computing power without a day of down-time and freely-accessible around the globe. We also saw over 50% more visitors in the last three months than the same period last year. Keep on coming back! You don’t have to register to use the ScienceOpen discovery tools, but in 2019 we also hit 40,000 registered users. That’s a lot of ORCID power. Thanks to our authors who published preprints and posters on ScienceOpen and to those who added a lay summary to their articles.
