Coronavirus, the management of epidemics & the broader impact on society

We have brought together a number of research resources related to the coronavirus group of viruses, and epidemics more broadly. These resources are freely available to access via Emerald Insight throughout this public health emergency.

As the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak continues to spread, we want to help you disseminate timely and relevant findings that will benefit all of society. As well as the need for medical and hard sciences, social sciences research is vital to the prevention, management, and understanding of the wider societal impact of COVID-19.

You can find out more about the collection and submitting your work on our Emerald open research platform.
