Since 13th January 2020, 49228 articles concerning SARS-CoV-2 were published. Many of them are not reviewed in a professional reviewing process at the time of publication. Our objective is to develop an easy to use interface to access, sort and classify the huge amount of articles about the Coronavirus.

Where does the research data come from?
How does it work?
Keyword Search: The keyword search uses Elasticsearch to find papers with matching keywords in their title, abstract or authors. Despite being very efficient when the user provides a good set of keywords, the search is not able to generalize the search query.
Category Assignment: The category assignment is computed by a machine learning algorithm. The model was trained with an existing dataset from LitCovid. LitCovid is a curated literature hub for tracking scientific information about SARS-CoV-2. Collabovid is an open source project that is licenced under GNU General Public License v3.0. The source code can be found at GitHub.
