by Christina Weis

(Updated: May 29, 2020)


The outbreak of Covid-19, its global spread and global responses has significant impact on social and biological reproduction, and our reproductive choices, health and rights.

With the aim to capture the developments and over the time build up a reference source, the Centre of Reproduction Research has launched this ‘COVID-19 and Reproduction’ digest. The digest includes news articles, empirical research, commentary work, blog posts, advice and guidelines, petitions and calls for research contributions and participants. It is organised into the below categories which continue to be updated and added to.

Thank you to everyone who contributed by sending in their publications, petitions and calls for research and special issues.

As the digest is growing, please follow links of the categories to come to see contents of each category.

See for calls for research and special issues below.

We recognise that this digest cannot capture everything and invite you to contribute material by contacting christina.weis@dmu.ac.uk , who will continue collating material.

We will be posting an updated digest periodically, probably every two weeks, with the most recent publications on top of the list.
