Update on Annual Reviews access control in response to COVID-19 pandemic

All Annual Reviews journals will continue to be available without access control through 15 June 2020. This is to assist the many students, faculty, and researchers who are working and studying remotely during the pandemic.

Access control was temporarily removed on 13 March 2020. During the month of March, there were 2.1 million combined HTML and PDF uses of Annual Reviews content, an 80 percent increase on usage in 2019. This supports the decision and illustrates the value of Annual Reviews content.

We appreciate the acceptance and support of institutional subscribers in making the content universally accessible during this emergency. We continue to encourage users to go through their library for access whenever possible, and for you to email our support team (support@annualreviews.org) if you need assistance with setting up your remote access.

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