A note from Alex Leavitt: Are you doing (or planning) social science research to aid COVID-19 prevention, resilience, or recovery? Nate Matias (Cornell University, Communication) and I (Alex Leavitt @ Facebook Research, Health Integrity) are crowdsourcing a list of international social science research about coronavirus. This is an unofficial, community-driven, open initiative for any social science or related projects.
