A novel coronavirus, 2019-nCoV, has been identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness that originated in Wuhan, China, and which has spread to several other countries around the world. As a leading research publisher, Springer Nature is committed to supporting the global response to emerging outbreaks by enabling fast and direct access to the latest available research, evidence, and data.

Below is the link to the resource hub, which is collating research articles from our journals that we have identified as the most recent and relevant to the outbreak, as well as additional commentary on this topic and relevant books. You can search for additional content on, and SpringerLink.

All content listed here is free to access. If you are not able to get access to an article that you believe to be important in both understanding and addressing this emergency, please contact our customer services team. 

Springer Nature encourages early sharing of research submitted to all our journals through preprints, and our In Review preprint service is available for many journals. We strongly urge authors submitting articles related to this emergency to Springer Nature journals to share underlying interim and final research datasets relating to the outbreak as rapidly and widely as possible, including with public health and research communities and the WHO.

Resources, collated in response to this outbreak, can be found here. These resources are being continually updated.
