We did a study under a grant to investigate the effects of COVID-19 on Medical Education. We however had some few corrections and ended up not publishing. Is it reasonable to start publishing efforts now considering we did the study in 2020 and we`re already post'-COVID?

  • Does the paper contain study in 2021 and 2022 ?

    We are very definitely not post-covid.

  • We may be pre- the next Covid wave. And we are probably pre-whatever other bad illness will appear. I suspect that the effects of Covid on medical education would apply to other highly infectious and possibly lethal infections as well.

Of course it is reasonable to publish something about COVID-19 despite the peak crisis of the pandemic having declined ... just as it is reasonable and useful to publish about the effects of


even though they too are now over. Indeed, it is reasonable to expect that the publications that have already appeared regarding COVID-19 will represent only a small fraction of the papers that will eventually be published. Research into a phenomenon or event, does not become irrelevant simply because the event has passed.
