Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in late January, 2020, there have been thousands of research papers studying every aspect of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease, from epidemiological modeling to virology to evolutionary biology to the psychological effects on healthcare workers.

The COVID-19 Preprint Index aims to provide an interface for researchers, journalists, and other users to quickly search and navigate the constantly evolving and overwhelming corpus of scientific literature pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. The index also includes detailed altmetric information so that users can isolate preprints that have gained traction with large public audiences and may require science communication interventions to combat the spread of misinformation or conspiracy theories.
