About Fatcat COVID-19 Paper Search

This is a prototype full text search index of papers, reports, datasets, and other research resources related to the COVID-19 crisis, including public health responses to influenza pandemics more generally. The curation of content to be included is based on efforts like the "CORD-19" dataset and efforts by authorities such as the WHO and NIH Pubmed. Metadata and content comes from the existing open fatcat catalog of research outputs. See "Sources" for details.

It is hoped that with additional care and development this resource may be useful to anybody keeping up with research in this area, and particularly folks working on systemic reviews, bibliometrics, or metaresearch. However, at time of writing, this is at best a technology demonstration, not a robust piece of knowledge infrastructure.

We encourage folks to consider the following more authoriative and well-supported tools for research discovery:
