New Search Interface Launched for WHO COVID-19 Database

Posted by on April 20th, 2020 Posted in: Communications Tools, Emergency Preparedness and Response, Non-NLM Resources, Public Health, Search Tools
Tags: ,


The World Health Organization is gathering the latest international multilingual scientific findings and knowledge on COVID-19 into a database, which has been available since January 26. A more powerful search interface was just launched on April 14. The majority of citations referenced are published journal articles. The global literature cited in the WHO COVID-19 database is updated every weekday with content from searches of bibliographic databases, hand searching, and the addition of other expert-referred scientific articles. Particular emphasis is placed on identifying literature from around the world. Multiple search strategies that are under continual revision are used to obtain this global perspective. New research is added regularly.
