Data Set: fMRI Meta-Analyses

This data set is the result of a systematic search in PubMed and APA PsycINFO for fMRI meta-analyses.

Meghan Testerman. (2021). Data Set: fMRI Meta-Analyses (Version 1.0) [Data set]. Zenodo. http://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.4974284

These records would be suitable for:

  • research questions regarding neuroimaging meta-analysis methodology (especially for those interested in coordination-based meta-analyses (CBMA): activation likelihood estimation (ALE) using GingerALE software, multi-level kernel density analysis (MKDA), seed-based d mapping (SDM), or image-based meta-analyses.

NOTE: These data are the raw search results from PubMed and PsycINFO and have been deduplicated but have NOT been screened for any inclusion criteria. This means you may find records in these results that are not, in fact, meta-analyses but still have the search terms (below) present in the title or abstract of the paper.

The data set is available in three formats: .csv, .ris, and a Zotero shared library

[Data Set] COVID Tracking Project Bibliographic Records

The Atlantic's COVID Tracking Project is a collaborative, volunteer-run organization for the gathering and publishing COVID-19 data in the United States from March 7, 2020 to March 7, 2021.


This data set contains 1,007 bibliographic records scraped from Google Scholar from March 1, 2020 to April 2, 2021 that mention or cite "covid tracking project" or "covidtracking.com".

The raw bibliographic records have not been filtered in any way and include records in multiple languages and document types (scholarly articles, book chapters, preprints, etc).

The bibliographic records are available in 4 formats: .bib, .ris, .csv, and in a shared Paperpile folder available here: https://paperpile.com/shared/e4TT7j
