Rapid Response: How arXiv and other open access resources are adapting to research community needs during the pandemic

Monday, October 19, 2020 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Virtual Event

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, researchers across disciplines and around the world rushed to study the virus, the disease, transmission, and treatment. Open access research sharing platforms, also known as preprint servers, provided the ideal format for scientists to share their findings quickly with their peers.

At this online event, open access leaders will discuss the pandemic’s impact on these research sharing resources. This crisis has revealed the importance of open access and rapid distribution of results. At the same time, it has uncovered challenges faced by this form of scholarly communication, and the strength of the community when developing innovative solutions.

Panelists:
Eleonora Presani, Executive Director, arXiv, Cornell University
John Inglis, Co-founder of bioRxiv and medRxiv and Executive Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press
Sebastian Kohlmeier, CORD-19 Project Manager and Senior Manager, Semantic Scholar, Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence

Attendees may send questions in advance to membership@arXiv.org.
