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.
