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.
Map users! Please can you spare a few minutes to complete this short user survey to help us understand who is using this living map and how?
Our new automatic updating process is now running and since April 2022 we have published 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 'About this Map' (.docx) or the 'Introduction' pane of the map (access below) for further information.
Access the current version - Version 100 (published on 17th January 2023) - here. The current version contains a cumulative total of ~192,000 records.
Long COVID 'Segment'
The latest version of this long COVID 'segment' - published on 17th January 2023 - contains bibliographic records of 4,095 articles (also included in our broader living map of COVID-19 research, above) that are likely to be about long COVID (up to version 100). Please see the 'About' tab 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).
