Resources temporarily made open during the Corona crisis: Publishers


In view of the Corona crisis, many of the world's leading publishers have decided to temporarily open their resources (journals, books, reference tools, distance learning tools, etc.) to free access (fully / partially). 
This page presents some of these resources and will continue to be updated throughout the crisis.
Two related pages are available: Open access resources (regardless of the corona crisis) and Corona virus resources.
