At Digital Science, we of course want to support the global research effort to manage and minimise the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic as best we can. For researchers, clinicians and anyone else working towards these goals, early knowledge and access to research being carried out and published globally is crucially important to inform their work.

In order to facilitate this, we are making available all COVID-19 related published articles, preprints, datasets and clinical trials from Dimensions in one file, updated daily, and free for anyone to access. We hope that this will help the research community to stay up to date in this fast-moving situation, and greatly reduce the time that would otherwise be required to collate this information from many disparate sources.

The file is available as an Excel file hosted on figshare

The file contains the details of (and links to) all relevant publications, data sets and clinical trials. The content has been exported from Dimensions using a query in the openly accessible Dimensions application, which you can access at

Dimensions is updated once every 24 hours, so the latest research can be viewed alongside existing information. With its range of research outputs including datasets and clinical trials, both of which are just as important as journal articles in this pandemic, Dimensions is a one-stop shop for all COVID-19 related information

We also want to make you aware that in collaboration with leading publishers, ReadCube has launched the COVID-19 Research Pass (CRP) program to provide direct access to over 26 million articles. This is available to anyone studying COVID-19. Register here:

Please share this information with anyone you think would benefit from it. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our search terms to maximise the volume of research related to COVID-19, please contact us at
