COVID-19: a living systematic map of the evidence


In response to the current crisis, we are maintaining an up-to-date map of the current evidence that we partition into broad domains for easy exploration. We are open to feedback on how we maintain and categorise this evidence base, so do get in touch if you have suggestions.

We will next update this map during the week of 6th April.

Access the current version (published on 1 April) here.


As part of the work spent compiling the above map, we compiled a list of online resources relating to COVID-19. We have published this list of resources online and will update it regularly. 


Access the previous version (published on 25 March) here.

Access the previous version of the map (published on 20 March) here.

You can access the previous version of the map published on 19 March here. (The date of search is the same as the above. We changed the description of one of the codes between versions to clarify that we are not doing a systematic search for 'other viruses' and that these records are therefore out of scope.)
