Bibliography of COVID-19 Legal Literature - updated to 1 September 2020

This page is continuously updated with new literature. The PDF annotated bibliography is updated every 2-3 weeks.

The bibliography below is arranged A) Literature B) Organisations and C) Blogs, journals and websites.

Part A includes scholarship and selected professional literature. It begins with books and then other literature, which is divided into broad topics - general followed by specific topics. 
We have only included each article under one topic heading, even if it is appropriate to be listed in two or more topics.
A note on the jurisdiction is included if this is not immediately obvious from the citation.
We have only included literature written in English, and we acknowledge that relevant literature in other languages is thus inevitably excluded.

Part B lists selected organisations with dedicated COVID-19 legal publications pages.

Part C lists selected blogs or other online fora.

This bibliography is compiled and updated by the Melbourne Law School Academic Research Service, using the following journal article databases: Index to Legal Periodicals (EBSCO), AGIS (INFORMIT), Westlaw UK Journals, Westlaw Canada Journals, Westlaw World Journals, law articles on the Oxford University Press free COVID-19 Resources, HEIN, Sabinet (South African journals) SSRN and Google Scholar. The main format of academic research at present is still working papers and pre-published scholarship. Much of this is on open access on SSRN, which has a dedicated Coronavirus Hub for early stage non-peer reviewed research. For published scholarship, in order to publish scholarship quickly, many scholarly journals have introduced ways to fast-track publication, including a faster peer-review process, and publishing accepted manuscripts and advance online articles.  Many journal platforms that are normally only available to subscribers or on a pay per article basis are making COVID-19 literature available on open access – some of this literature is freely available until a specified date. There are also many COVID-19 special issues of journals rapidly emerging.

Links are provided in the bibliography for literature and other resources available on open access.

Please contact Robin Gardner in the Academic Research Service law-academicresearch@unimelb.edu.au if you have any suggestions for additional content. For Melbourne Law School staff, the Academic Research Service can supply full text articles listed below that are not available on open access.
