The webinar series "Doing science in times of crisis: Science studies perspectives on COVID-19" started on 20 May 2020 during the early stages of the pandemic. The goal of this event is to connect and showcase COVID-19 science studies research from institutions around the world.
Research around COVID-19 has experienced broad public interest, with new findings being distributed in various communication platforms. In this blog post we introduce a monitoring tool for exploring the social media reception of scientific publications on the pandemic.
Many initiatives are keeping track of research on COVID-19 and coronaviruses. These initiatives, while valuable because they allow for fast access to relevant research, pose the question of subject delineation. We analyse here one such initiative, the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19).
