COVID-19 Evidence Mapper - Fostering evidence for decision-making support and research collaboration by up-to-date mapping and querying of research, researchers and research resources (COVID-19 Evidence Mapper)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2020 May 01 to 2020 Jul 05

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: Instituto de Saúde Baseada na Evidência (ISBE) (University)

Current processes for searching evidence (e.g., pubmed, google scholar) are based on search engines which provide lists of search results. They are unable to map and to inform the complexity and comprehensiveness of information which directly answers the fundamental question every scientist, decision-maker or anyone aiming to retrieve the latest knowledge needs effectively answered: “what is the evidence accessible for this topic?”. We propose a new online platform dedicated to integrate innovative mechanisms for comprehensively retrieving, analysing and mapping up-to-date evidence regarding the COVID pandemic over a large set of documents, including basic and clinical studies, public health, social sciences, economics, engineering, psychology, etc
