Coronavirus: IET releases COVID-19 related research to support researchers in fight against virus

By collating relevant content from across the IET’s journals collection and Inspec abstracts and index database, alongside relevant search terms and classification codes, researchers can now access a range of topics relating to technology solutions against the virus. Researchers can also find areas and topics related to their initial search, allowing them to access information that they may not have originally considered or found.

Vincent Cassidy, Head of Academic Markets at the IET, said: “We know that there is a huge demand for research into the virus and associated topics that could help with finding solutions.

“Inspec – the IET’s globally renowned abstracts and index database for physics, electronics, computing and engineering – is unlike any other indexing source in that it is curated by scientists, as opposed to artificial intelligence. This provides an invaluable source of research that we know is approved by experts. We hope that this, along with our relevant journals, can help support research efforts during this time.”
