That’s why Sciendo, a firm believer in Open Access, is offering all of its coronavirus material in a dedicated, easy to access page. Sciendo want to support the scientific and medical research communities to help to understand and accelerate the development of vaccines and diagnoses. We hope this page will make it easy to access coronavirus-related research for the media and other stakeholders."
