Publishing on 'ebola' is a booming pastime...

One of my jobs since October last year has been to keep up on the literature for Ebola virus and Ebola virus disease. 

At this stage I have a lot of reading to catch up on.


There were 1,858 publications during the 37 years including 1977 to 2013. In 2014 and 2015 (so far), there have been 1,485 publications.

According to a basic search of PubMed using the term 'ebola' - there have been over 1,500 publications - and those are the ones captured by PubMed - to be found using that search term.
