Epidemiological data from the COVID-19 outbreak, real-time case information | Scientific Data

“Cases of a novel coronavirus were first reported in Wuhan, Hubei province, China, in December 2019 and have since spread across the world. Epidemiological studies have indicated human-to-human transmission in China and elsewhere. To aid the analysis and tracking of the COVID-19 epidemic we collected and curated individual-level data from national, provincial, and municipal health reports, as well as additional information from online reports. All data are geo-coded and, where available, include symptoms, key dates (date of onset, admission, and confirmation), and travel history. The generation of detailed, real-time, and robust data for emerging disease outbreaks is important and can help to generate robust evidence that will support and inform public health decision making.

The data are openly available and we will continue to curate the database as new information is made available….”

Open Science: Key Resources for Medievalists – Mittelalter

“The following collection of online resources is part of our article “How to make your medieval research more visible with Open Scholarship Methods and Tools” to be published in Imago Temporis Medium Aevum 15 (2021) at Lleida University (Spain). We would like to thank the editors of Imago Temporis Medium Aevum to allow us to bring a so-called living version of the section “Key Resources” online before the final publication of the article (read more about the journal here). The living version may differ from the upcoming printed version (updates, additional resources).

In the following we would like to share a (commented) list of useful resources for medievalists in the digital age with a focus on Open Science (Communication). Within each section the items are ordered alphabetically. This list does by no means claim to be exhaustive and it contains mainly non-profit resources. Often your university or institutional library can provide you with more information about Open Access content, policies, initiatives, and services available at your institution and beyond. We recommend to check online guides provided by libraries and welcome suggestions for additions and changes….”

Publisher Data Availability Policies Index – CHORUS

“Over the last few years, publishers have been making their Data Availability Policies known either at the publisher level or at the journal level. These policies range in their mandate, but most require authors to make all data necessary to replicate their study’s findings publicly available without restriction at the time of publication. When specific legal or ethical restrictions prohibit public sharing of a data set, authors must indicate how others may obtain access to the data. Often, when submitting a manuscript to the publisher, authors must provide a Data Availability Statement describing compliance with the data availability policy. If the article is accepted for publication, the Data Availability Statement will be published as part of the article.CHORUS has created a centralized index of our member publishers’ policies with links to the publisher’s site. This chart will be updated at least annually….”

Coronavirus (Covid-2019) : Publisher support for combating COVID-19

“STM’s members have acted rapidly and decisively to support the continued global response to the rapid worldwide spread of COVID-19 with immediate access to accurate and validated articles and monographs that the public can trust.

In direct response to the health emergency, publishers provided free access to relevant peer reviewed publications to ensure that throughout the duration of the outbreak, research and data quickly reaches the widest possible audiences. On the 30th January STM reached out to members to coordinate and broaden the wider efforts to make relevant research quickly and freely available. Over the subsequent days and weeks, more than 32,000 articles, chapters and other resources have been made findable and useable in this manner. This resource page was deployed on the 10th February, whilst throughout the month, publishers worked to continue to identify and improve the use of resources in tandem with world governments and non-governmental organisations. Agreements have been made to ensure that resources are available under terms and in formats that enable machine analysis and reuse. The publishing community is committed to helping combat COVID-19. We continue to offer researchers the full range of publisher systems and solutions to enhance their abilities to address the global health crisis and hope that these provisions will aid the global response and make a difference. Below are links to publisher’s resource hubs and freely available articles. (Last updated 15th April 2020)…”

Academic Data Science Alliance – COVID-19 Resources

“The Academic Data Science Alliance is working with partners to pull together data and data science resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a living list of resources and we welcome additions, suggestions, and collaborations. Please send additions, corrections, comments, and suggestions to us using this feedback form.

Please keep suggestions limited to research and data resources, avoiding opinion pieces and teaching resources. …”
