Many organizations are making Covid information freely available who might normally charge for access to their journals and articles.

  • This research guide from SUNY Upstate's medical library is a great place to get started. It links to lots of useful resources; including Selected Articles at the bottom, chosen by the Upstate medical librarians. 
  • LitCovid is a great central location for locating the latest studies about Covid. It's hosted by the National Library of Medicine, and it's what doctors and nurses working on Covid use. It has a nice arrangement, with tabs along the top for treatment, diagnosis, prevention, etc., and a search bar. 
  • If your assignment requires articles accessed through the MVCC library, try the Medline database. Here is a link to a sample search about vaccines, using some search terms that the database auto-suggests when you start typing. Be sure to watch publication dates; even something published earlier this year could be outdated information with this topic. You can filter your results by date range in the left-hand menu. 
  • This source is not peer-reviewed, but it is extremely widely used and cited: The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center is constantly updated to track cases, deaths, and vaccines worldwide.
