Springer Nature applauds the efforts and results of researchers to understand and further prevent the spread of Covid-19. At the beginning of March, the United States Office for Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) initiated a campaign which is supported by the National Science Advisors of 12 other countries with the request to deposit all published articles reporting on research results related to Covid-19 in the repositories of PubMed Central (PMC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

In an effort to support scientific research and to ensure that important research is accessible to those who need it, Springer Nature has decided to make its related research in its publications and data freely available to the global scientific community. Immediate access was the key at a time where normal working at research institutions and in labs was unrealistic and not an option.

In the framework of these campaigns, Springer Nature has deposited published journal articles and book chapters on coronaviruses. A Publication by Maciej Paszyński, Marcin Łoś and Krzysztof Podsiadło entitled "Parallel Shared-Memory Isogeometric Residual Minimization (iGRM) for Three-Dimensional Advection-Diffusion Problems" (in an automated process based on a set of search terms used in the global scientific discussion about Covid-19 research) has been included in these campaigns and made freely available to help fight the current pandemic: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-3-030-50436-6_10.

Cogratulatios to the authors.
