Read our research

We are making these resources freely available to access via Emerald Insight throughout this public health emergency. 

Whilst these materials do not only relate to the current clinical challenges of COVID-19, they may provide relevant context to how the world reacted to other previous coronavirus outbreaks, notably Severe Acute Respitory Syndrome (SARS).

In addition, this research explores the wider impact on society and includes research on healthcare, education, homeworking, supply chain management (SCM) and tourism.
