There is a new literature search hub that is available for the 2019 novel Coroavirus that was developed as a collaboration between the journal Nature and the US National Institutes of Health’s intramural research programme.
LitCovid is a curated literature hub for tracking up to date scientific information about COVID-19. Right now, it is the most thorough resource on the subject through providing access to a growing number of relevant articles in PubMed – i.e. about 17,000. Unlike doing the conventional keyword searches for “COVID-19” or “nCOV”, LitCovid has a sophisticated search function that identifies 35% more pertinent articles. As well, the articles are organized by topic as well as by geographic location.
