PLoS Currents: Influenza and New H1N1 Resources

The current epidemic of swine-origin H1N1 influenza A virus highlights the need for the rapid exchange of scientific results and ideas. PLoS Currents: Influenza aims to enable this exchange by providing an open-access online resource for immediate, open communication and discussion of new scientific data, analyses, and ideas in the field of influenza. This web site contains moderated content for rapid and open sharing of useful new scientific data, analyses, and ideas.

The UC Berkeley Public Health Library also recently added new H1N1 resources to its H1N1 Influenza web page.

EBSCO Publishing is making freely available information from DynaMed (a resource for clinicians), Nursing Reference Center, and Patient Education Reference Center on their Influenza Evidence-based Information Portal.

In addition, the Report to the President on U.S. Preparations for 2009 H1N1 Influenza (pdf) was recently released by the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

Influenza A H1N1 (Swine Flu) Resources and FAQs from UCB’s University Health Services was also recently updated.
