The power of RightFind is that it provides immediate access to scientific literature and data. As researchers come together to identify potential treatments and a vaccine for COVID-19, the team at CCC is taking steps to support the needs of information professionals as they adjust their services to better meet user demand.
Whether you’re a longstanding RightFind Enterprise user or new to the platform, there are several ways to use RightFind to get COVID-19 information.
COVID collection in RightFind Enterprise
Publishers are making content related to COVID-19 open to read, and we have been working to make those articles as well as pre-prints of the latest research easy to obtain in RightFind Enterprise. As of today, RightFind Enterprise’s COVID collection includes access to more than 67,000 articles and preprints from the following sources:
- COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19)
- Europe PMC
- PubMed’s LitCovid dataset
- World Health Organization (WHO)
We are regularly updating RightFind with the latest content from these sources.
To get immediate access to this content through RightFind:
Open the advanced search and input any of the keywords below. You can search all COVID-19 open to read content using the keyword “COVID2020” or perform a more focused search of the individual datasets. You can copy the URL and share it with your users.
- COVID2020 (applied to all articles in the collection)
- Europe PMC

COVID content in XML format for text mining
Organizations interested in COVID-19-related content for text mining projects can access CCC’s XML for Mining Open Access COVID collection. This collection is available even if you don’t currently use RightFind XML for Mining.
