Pandemic Presence: COVID-19 Research Persists

By Marissa Massare on Jul 6, 2021
As the COVID-19 pandemic’s presence persists across the globe, research on the pandemic itself has infiltrated the research community, with many of IGI Global’s publications leading the insightful and impactful dialogue that has surfaced. Unfortunately, the pandemic is far from over with new variations spreading, complications with the vaccination of different age groups, and different countries navigating policies to safely resume “normal” life. IGI Global continues to remain committed to the publication of emerging concepts, trends, and controversies as they continue to develop from this worldwide health crisis.

It is an incredibly exciting time for research as the pandemic has pushed ongoing issues to the forefront and revealed new controversies, allowing for new and innovative practices to emerge. From encouraging advancements in vaccinations, to the widespread implementation of online learning, to the push for increased safety and work-life balance, to the drive to not only talk about diversity, racism, equity, and inclusivity, but to also implement solutions to overcome these issues in society, the pandemic and its influence has become an ever-present factor in the way that society will move forward as a whole. As such, it is more important than ever that society stay informed and are aware of the impacts of this pandemic in their daily lives.
Some of IGI Global’s Gold Open Access journals, including International Journal of Library and Information Services (IJLIS), International Journal of E-Health and Medical Communications (IJEHMC), and Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) have recently published articles that feature premier research on the impacts of COVID-19 among many different disciplines and offer a look towards the future and the many consequences and opportunities the pandemic has afforded. These articles are freely accessible by all and are relevant to academicians, researchers, and students across all disciplines.

Open Access articles are published under the CC BY 4.0 license, allowing the copyright of the work to remain with the author and allowing for it to be freely distributed, shared, etc. upon publication.

IGI Global’s APCs range from $750 to $2,000 USD.
To assist researchers in covering the costs of the APC in OA publishing, IGI Global offers an OA Fee Waiver Initiative. For any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci®-Databases, IGI Global will match the library's investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the Open Access APCs for their patrons. This provides authors with 100% OA subsidies to be utilized toward any IGI Global journal. To learn more, please visit IGI Global’s Transformative Read and Publish Model page.
While we are not quite out of the clear of COVID-19 with new variants and the pandemic still at large, the knowledge shared through research contributes to the hope needed to overcome.
