The impact of COVID-19 in fields outside science and medicine, is one that the academic community is only just beginning to process. As the community starts to research and publish papers on the effect of the global pandemic within other areas of study such as sociology, anthropology, politics, and gender studies, we will collate that content on this page. Our COVID-19 page will reflect the dynamic and organic content of our journals and as it is updated, this page will be a record of COVID-19’s continuing reach, repercussion and reverberation through every aspect of life, in every part of the world.
