Annual Reviews removes access control in response to COVID-19 pandemic

To assist the many students, faculty, and researchers who are working and studying remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective today, we have made all our journals available (without access control) through Thursday April 30, 2020. On that date, we will assess the need to extend this policy.

President and Editor-In-Chief of Annual Reviews, Dr. Richard Gallagher said, “Reviews are a treasure trove of knowledge, particularly well-suited to remote teaching and learning. As a nonprofit organization run for the benefit of science and the progress of society, we hope that this action will make the time spent away from research and academic institutions a little easier.”

Dr. Gallagher pointed to another online teaching resource also published by Annual Reviews that is always openly available, Knowable Magazine – a digital publication that explores the real-world significance of scholarly work through a journalistic lens.

Finally, for those of you looking for a curated collection of articles relevant to the pandemic, you can find them in our living Collection.

Annual Reviews is a nonprofit publisher dedicated to synthesizing and integrating knowledge for the progress of science and the benefit of society.
