preVIEW: COVID-19 – Information search in preprints made easier
The Preprint Viewer was developed as the first result of the COVID-19 Task Force. Members of NFDI4Health launched the initiative to make it easier for the specialist community to find relevant studies and to exchange data more effectively. The COVID-19 Task Force is funded by the DFG.
Currently, preprints from bioRxiv, medRxiv, ChemRxiv, arXiv, Preprints.org, ssrn and researchsquare are integrated into the service.
The tool, which is based on text mining, was developed in the research group of Prof. Dr. Juliane Fluck. It offers advanced search and filter functions for abstracts, direct links to the corresponding full texts and export functions for retrieved results. The abstracts are updated daily.

The German Central Health Study Hub allows researchers to publish their project characteristics, documents and data related to their research project in a FAIR manner or to find information about past and ongoing studies.
The Data Train cross-disciplinary graduate training programme, a core element of the NFDI4Health training approach, aims at building the next generation of data-savvy researchers in the biomedical sciences.
Health data, as collected in clinical trials and epidemiological, as well as public health studies, cannot be freely published, but are valuable datasets whose reuse is of high importance for health research. NFDI4Health has established a metadata standard and process for the publication of health studies to make health data FAIR.
