COVID-19 Publication Repository

COVID-19 Repository highlights many contributions of social scientists

ISCE extends a warm thank you to all social science (broadly defined) and policy faculty at Virginia Tech who have contributed their expertise in addressing the coronavirus pandemic.

Since April 2020, ISCE has maintained a repository of COVID-19 related research and scholarship of faculty and Centers affiliated with the Institute, as well as members of the Virginia Tech community who are engaged in research focusing on the social, psychological, and policy impact of the coronavirus on people and places. Due to this focus, the repository highlights nonmedical-oriented research and scholarship taking place at Virginia Tech during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Topics range from debates on mask wearing to the impact of the pandemic on children, education, travel and the economy to issues around college sports, women and employment, cybercrime and resilience. The repository currently includes:

  • 46+ journal articles, research briefs or other scholarly works
  • 40+ editorials or blogs
  • 50+ stories that demonstrate the Virginia Tech Ut Prosim spirit
  • 275+ popular news media stories and interviews that feature social scientists

We know there are likely more media stories that we have missed. Although we will no longer be actively identifying these types of stories, please feel free to send any of your scholarly publications related to COVID-19 to Yancey Crawford, and we will add to them the repository. We appreciate all your efforts!

We have categorized publications under five headings:

  • Scholarly Research Articles
  • Research/Policy Briefs
  • Editorials/Blog Posts
  • What Virginia Tech Social Scientists Are Saying About COVID-19
  • Ut Prosim In Action
