Pandemic Science Maps
In the lab, we (Alla Loseva, Daniel Alexandrov, and students) have created a blog dedicated to the research literature and global epidemics — including COVID-19.
On the website, one can find the so-called science maps — clustered networks of publications found via a systematic search in Scopus and Web of Science bibliographic databases. The maps are accompanied by brief reviews of the studies. We also overview the preprints of recent scientific papers on COVID-19. Maps and reviews are prepared by the second- and third-year students of the Bachelor's programme Sociology and Social Informatics.
The blog helps to decide which publications are key to understand a topic, and which authors are worth reading. You will also see from which angles a topic is studied. Such maps and reviews are useful to form an idea of what issues are covered by the epidemics and pandemics research, what the authors focus on, and what literature they address.
If you want to support the blog — suggest a topic for mapping or even become an author — please use the "Write to us" section of the website. You can also comment on the published posts.
