19 – AIP Publishing LLC

To support global research during the COVID-19 pandemic, AIP Publishing has made this collection of articles on infectious diseases, epidemics, computational epidemiology, and pandemics free to read.

The latest novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2 and its resultant disease COVID-19, has reached pandemic status. Researchers in all fields, from medicine, chemistry, structural biology, and even physics, are hard at work to contain the outbreak. To aid researchers working on this important global issue, AIP Publishing has identified this collection of relevant research articles and made them free for the global research community to read.

These articles examine several aspects of infectious diseases, epidemics, computational epidemiology, and pandemics. The collection includes papers published in several AIP Publishing journals and AIP Conference Proceedings on topics including: computational methods spanning complex networks, evolutionary methodologies, random walk dynamics, mechanistic models, and more. The results report many interesting facets of disease spreading and control, including the effect of human behaviors, geographical network structures, and responsive immunization vaccine success.

Additional articles on COVID-19 and its impact on science and the community are available in Physics Today.
