Abstract

We present an analysis on the uptake of open access on COVID-819 related literature as well as the social media attention they gather when9compared with non OA papers. We use a dataset of publications curated by10Dimensions and analyze articles and preprints. Our sample includes 11,68611publications of which 67.5% are openly accessible. OA publications tend to re-12ceive the largest share of social media attention as measured by the Altmetric13Attention Score. 37.6% of OA publications are bronze, which means toll jour-14nals are providing free access. MedRxiv contributes to 36.3% of documents in15repositories but papers in BiorXiv exhibit on average higher AAS. We predict16the growth of COVID-19 literature in the following 30 days estimating ARIMA17models for the overall publications set, OA vs. non OA and by location of the18document (repository vs. journal). We estimate that COVID-19 publications19will double in the next 20 days, but non OA publications will grow at a higher20rate than OA publications. We conclude by discussing the implications of such21findings on the dissemination and communication of research findings to mit-22igate the coronavirus outbreak

BioRxiv & MedRxiv Preprints

BioRxiv and MedRxiv are the preprint servers for biology and health sciences respectively, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Here are the latest preprint articles (which are not peer-reviewed) from BioRxiv and MedRxiv.

CRISPR (general)

Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Discover the latest research on CRISPR here.

CRISPR Ribonucleases Deactivation

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on mechanisms that underlie deactivation of CRISPR ribonucleases. Here is the latest research.

CRISPR Genome Editing & Therapy (Preprints)

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of this system for gene editing and therapy in human diseases.

CRISPR for Genome Editing (Preprints)

Genome editing technologies enable the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) are DNA sequences in the genome that are recognized and cleaved by CRISPR-associated proteins (Cas). Here are the latest preprints on the use of CRISPR-Cas system in gene editing.
