Researching Business-related topics and Covid-19

Covid-19 Terms

Covid-19 is known by a number of different names. If you are searching Google or databases for information on the disease, it's important to keep this in mind. Not every author will call the virus by the same name.  To increase your success at finding information, you should switch-out these terms and try different searches.  This will bring new and different results to you.

  • novel coronavirus
  • COVID19
  • coronavirus
  • 2019-nCoV
  • SARS-CoV-2

Not finding much on your topic?

Depending on your topic, you may or may not find many helpful articles.  This is especially true if you are looking for scholarly journal articles.  You may need to consider searching related terms to get relevant information.  For example:

  • pandemic
  • natural disaster
  • emergency planning
  • crisis

Each of these terms applies to our current times.  While they aren't specific to Covid-19, they do convey the general environment that affects our lives and the economy.
