COVID-19: a living systematic map of the evidence
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to maintain this living map of research evidence on COVID-19, partitioned into broad domains.
Our automated updating process is now running and we publish further, regular updates of the map when ready (i.e. each time a new set of records from each sequential update of the OpenAlex dataset has been auto-coded and added to the map). Please see the 'Introduction' pane of the map (access below) for further details.
Access the current version - Version 106 (published on 24th October 2023) - of the living map here. The current version contains a cumulative total of ~250,000 records.
Long COVID 'Segment'
The current version of our long COVID 'segment' - up to Version 106 - was also published on 24th October 2023. It contains bibliographic records of 5,850 articles that are likely to be about long COVID (and which are also included in our much broader living map of COVID-19 research (above). Please see the 'Introduction' pane in the 'segment' for further details. Further updates of this 'segment' will be published when ready (as per the broader living map - see above).
Other online resources relating to COVID-19
As part of the work spent compiling the above map, we compiled a list of online resources relating to COVID-19.
Quarterly scoping of the long COVID literature: Systematic Reviews on long COVID and RCTs on long COVID treatments
In addition to the living maps, we have been commissioned by DHSC to produce an ongoing series of reports which aim to provide a more detailed overview of long COVID evidence. Specifically, we were asked to provide quarterly updates on two strands of research: a) published and ongoing systematic reviews on long COVID. b) published randomised controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating treatment or rehabilitation for long COVID. These reports can be accessed here. Any articles identified by scoping not already included in the long COVID 'segment' of our living map of COVID-19 research (see above) are added to the 'segment' (and also to the main map).
