OUP makes coronavirus resources free to all

Oxford University Press is making content related to the coronavirus free to access to the media and the public at large, "in an effort to help inform and educate all who are responding to and covering this global health emergency."

The World Health Organisation officially declared the new outbreak originating in Wuhan, China, a global health emergency yesterday (30th January), and the BBC this morning announced two confirmed cases in the UK.

OUP has pulled pertinent content from multiple sources, including books, journals, and other reference materials, for a page on its website; additional resources will be added as they become available, the publisher said.

The move follows a similar announcement from Elsevier earlier this week.
