Finding COVID-19 research

When searching Ovid MEDLINE or PubMed, there are COVID search filters you can add to your search to focus your results:

In Ovid MEDLINE, after searching for your topic, click the Limits link below the search box and check the "COVID-19" box, then the Search button:

In PubMed, click "Clinical Queries," in the Find section on the main page; then choose COVID-19.

The sources below are good places to find preprints, grey literature, and other COVID research not included in MEDLINE.
