Search filters for Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs)

If you are running a QUB Public Health literature search, scoping review or systematic review relating to LMICs, you might find the search filters below useful. These can be copied and pasted into the databases specified to speed up the process of searching for papers about LMICs.

Filters are downloadable as PDFs, and are also available as text files for easier editing (e.g. in case a particular search topic requires certain countries to be removed or added).

Please note: the featured lists of LMICs are derived from the DAC List of ODA Recipients 2022 and 2023:
