The repository of COVID-19 research by researchers of Bangladeshi origin

During COVID-19 pandemic, a large volume of research has been conducted both at home and abroad. These have substantially helped us understand various dimensions of the pandemic, its impact on health and society, and a way out. However, this knowledge is scattered all over the place, and therefore, hard to find in time.
BHW is delighted to initiate a research repository which would house all COVID-19 public health researches conducted on Bangladesh context at the disposal of the policy makers and practitioners, field implementers, academics and researchers. This repository is expected to be a credible source of information on COVID-19 research for all of them. Three types of articles are uploaded:

i) Research done by BRAC, BRAC University (BRACU) and institutes under BRACU or where one of the authors is from BRAC programmes;
ii) Research done beyond BRAC family but within Bangladesh and authored by a Bangladeshi researcher;
iii) Research done outside Bangladesh but using data from Bangladesh and authored/co-authored by a Bangladeshi researcher.

At this stage, only peer reviewed, full-text articles (research, review, policy and commentary), are included in the repository. Supplementary articles like reports, policy briefs, letters to the editors etc. will be added later on. Articles are curated from popular citation databases like Scopus, Litcovid, (a literature hub of PubMed for tracking up-to-date articles about the Covid 19), and websites of different research organisations and universities within and beyond Bangladesh. At present, the repository contains around 815 research articles.
