From b-On publishers, we highlight:

  • have partnered with ProQuest to offer unlimited access to EBook Central holdings

  • have launched a publishing fund of £20,000 to cover the Article Processing Charges for research published on Emerald Open Research related to the outbreak and similar healthcare emergencies.

Springer Nature made available for free all relevant research published by Springer Nature, and are strongly urging our authors submitting articles related to this emergency to share underlying datasets relating to the outbreak as rapidly and widely as possible.
Sharing research data and findings relevant to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, as well as supporting the initiative from the White House Office of Science and Technology to make all relevant global research, and data, available in one place. We also have a role to play providing good, fact-based journalistic and opinion content on this fast-moving public health issues in Nature (for researchers and research leaders) and Scientific American (for the broader public).
 
 
Our response includes the launch of a global resource site to help medical researchers and healthcare professionals access the world’s leading research and late-breaking news around the coronaviruses.

Free access to COVID-19 Research
As scholarly publishers, in partnership with editors, scholarly societies and libraries, we curate, make discoverable and rapidly disseminate research.
We have a critical role to play in the current emergency:
   - Provide the research community with free access to COVID-19 research here.
   - Launched a microsite consolidating journal and book resources on COVID-19. Currently being updated based on daily keyword scans of articles in production, to ensure that we are making all COVID-19 research free at the point of publication
