- The US National Library of Medicine has released the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19) of scholarly literature related to COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, and the Coronavirus group. The dataset is the most comprehensive machine-readable Coronavirus literature collection available for data and text mining to date, with over 29,000 articles - more than 13,000 of them full text. This dataset is intended to mobilize researchers to apply recent advances in natural language processing to generate new insights in support of the fight against this infectious disease. The corpus will be updated weekly as new research is published in peer-reviewed publications and archival services like bioRxiv, medRxiv, and others. CORD-19 Explorer is a quick and easy way to search the CORD-19 corpus, or you can download the complete data here.
