Free access to coronavirus research


Cambridge University Press is providing free access to research related to the coronavirus.

The outbreak of a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in China and its subsequent spread has been declared a Global Health Emergency. In response, the Press has made a collection of over 70 relevant book chapters and journal articles freely available on its website.

It is also giving access to a recently-published commentary on the 2019-nCoV outbreak from Brian McCloskey from the Centre on Global Health Security, Chatham House, Royal Institute of International Affairs, and David L Heymann, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Featured in Epidemiology & Infection, the article looks at how lessons from the 2003 SARS epidemic have shaped the response to this outbreak.

The Press plays a global role in education and research and shares its University’s mission to contribute to society through its work. Sharing that research can play an important role in tackling shared threats such as this.

Research in the collection has been drawn from journals including Epidemiology & InfectionPrehospital and Disaster MedicineInfection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, and from Animal Health Research Reviews, among others.
