    Results from OddPub: We did not detect open data. We also did not detect open code. Researchers are encouraged to share open data when possible (see Nature blog).

    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    Another limitation is the possibility that some relevant studies were not taken into account because they have been published in languages other than English (e.g., Chinese). We also did not have access to some other databases that may store some articles on COVID-19 and cognitive dysfunctions. And lastly, there could be some other studies on this theme in the literature that skipped our attention and analyses. However, a comprehensive search strategy that covers a broad range of evidence was implemented. This systematic review gathered evidence that could provide clarity on the association between brain fog and COVID-19 infection. The information acquired in this study may help re-evaluate the impact of the virus. Furthermore, the use of the data gleaned from this analysis may assist in earlier treatment, allowing physicians and clinicians to manage the neurological manifestation effectively. Additionally, this will aid in the development of various therapeutic strategies to support COVID-19 patients in recovering from impaired cognitive capacity. Finally, the analysis of such data could provide an insight into the challenges that this virus could cause people in their prime years, particularly those in the workforce.

    Results from TrialIdentifier: No clinical trial numbers were referenced.

    Results from Barzooka: We did not find any issues relating to the usage of bar graphs.

    Results from JetFighter: We did not find any issues relating to colormaps.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
