COVID-19 Research Support

COVID-19 has confirmed the importance of free knowledge. On this page we have compiled a number of initiatives to promote open research and data on the topic as well as information on how we can assist researchers at Uppsala University.

You will also find information on temporary changes in routines regarding our research support during the pandemic.


Do you have an article about COVID-19 that is accepted for publication, or already published, in a journal? If you have published with immediate open access, you retain the copyright and can make the published version/version of record available in full text in DiVA. Otherwise, if possible, make a pre-print (submitted version) available or post-print (accepted version) in full text in DiVA. See the publisher’s policies regarding self-archiving in SHERPA RoMEO.

Book chapters may also be self-archived. Unfortunately, there is no comprehensive overview for academic book publishers. Instead, you can examine the publisher's policy in each individual case, which we can help you with. Read more about open access in practice.

Want to discuss opportunities to disseminate your research results? Book an appointment with a librarian or contact the Library if you can't find a suitable time.
