The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic, which has concentrated worldwide scientific power in an unprecedented manner, has altered the global scientific landscape in many ways. The scale of intellectual and financial investment and the rapidity with which research has been moving since the onset of the pandemic are mind-boggling. The attention of nearly 8 billion people and their governments is focused on understanding the epidemiology and biology of this perilous virus and on finding ways to prevent and treat the infection. Since January 2020, more than 130 000 articles about SARS-CoV-2 and coronavirus 2 disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been published. This vast amount of research, coupled with the urgency for dissemination of results has placed enormous pressure on scientific journals to rapidly assess a massive volume of submitted manuscripts, expedite peer review, and publish results quickly.
