This post was created initially to save me searching around for links while looking for updates. But hopefully it will help you too.
1. Scientific work
- Journal collections of Ebola-related material, either Ebola-specific pages, searches for Ebola or journals with low throughput and high proportion Ebola.
- Science. Heavier on basic science of the virus
- The Lancet. Heavier on clinical matters
- New England Journal of Medicine. Heavier on epidemiology
- The BMJ. Very little research to date.
- JAMA. This is a search results, rather than a dedicated landing, page.
- MMWR. Operational research; run by the US CDC.
- PLoS Currents Outbreaks. Rapid review; becoming a go-to journal for Ebola, despite being very new.
- Eurosurveillance. Mixture of operations and epidemiology; run by the European CDC.
- The arXiv. Pre-prints of more technical scientific pieces, some of which have been subsequently published.
- BMC and Springer journals. Heavier on viriology.
2. Data sources
- World Health Organization situation reports (every Weds/Fri)
- Guinea national data, via UN OCHA and sometimes via the French Embassy website (but this can take digging, the 14th October update isn’t linked on the News page).
- Sierra Leone national data
- Liberia national data (impressive interactive data, but no sitreps since 11th October – written on 18 Oct)
- Caitlin Rivers maintains an Ebola github including much of this, including county-level figures
- Datamarket has made these data available through its API.
- Several of these links were lifted from the NYU Ebola Hackathon page (1-2 Nov if you are in the area).
- For up-to-date information I would also recommend ReliefWeb’s Ebola monitoring page.
- Tech4relief maintains a resource list focused on data sources.
- And Defense One has a nice overview of many of the above sources but with real sentences.
- And for something (far) more wide-ranging than this, see Lab Rat‘s Ebola reference page.
