ProjectsIPPO - Living Map
Living map of systematic reviews of social sciences research evidence on COVID-19

This living map is being maintained by the EPPI Centre as part of our role in the ESRC International Public Policy Observatory (IPPO), which aims to mobilise global knowledge to address the social impacts of COVID-19. It contains bibliographic records of systematic reviews of social sciences research evidence on COVID-19 - organised by topic(s), population(s), and other selected review characteristics.

Map users! Please can you spare a couple of minutes to complete this short user survey, to help us understand who is using the map and how?

Access the latest version of the living map below (two options):

Version 10 (31-12-2021) – EPPI-Visualiser App

Version 10 (31-12-2021) – EPPI-Mapper 

N.B. As Microsoft has discontinued the website, all URL links to Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG) records, included in most of the records published in our map, are currently broken. We are working on a fix, which we hope to implement in February 2022, that involves replacing all of these URL links with new links directed to the corresponding (replacement) OpenAlex records. In the meantime, please use DOI links where available.
