To support the launch of Elsevier's groundbreaking report Gender in the Global Research Landscape, it has created a resource center as a source of information for researchers, research leaders, policymakers and anyone else interested in gender diversity and its impact on science and society. Through this work, Elsevier is committed to SDG 5 to advance gender equality.
Elsevier's Gender Report importantly supports SDG 5 - gender equality - by applying a gender lens to the field of science and research. It examines the proportion of female researchers and inventors in twelve countries, the fields women tend to specialise in and whether women or men publish more articles. This report provides sound data for understanding the role of gender within the structure of the global research landscape.
Nanotechnology provides an emerging potent alternate mode of cancer therapy. The study emphasizes the synthesis of defect-rich hierarchical microspheres of PEGylated MoS2 nanosheets and h-MoO3 nanorods using a sustainable chemical route. This study also investigates their cytotoxicity towards lung and breast cancer cell lines. The authors noticed that defect-rich hierarchical microspheres of PEGylated MoS2 nanosheets and h-MoO3have better cytotoxicity toward breast (MCF-7) and lung (A549) cancer cells, respectively. These findings will further strengthen nanomaterials role for advancement in cancer therapy and contribute to SDG 3.
Children at Imperial College London
The Elsevier Foundation partners with Imperial College London to support a high-tech makerspace next to the college. The programme offers 14 to 18 year-olds from one of London's most disadvanataged communities the opportunity to enhance soft skills and engage with cutting-edge science, engineering and design through workshops, afterscool clubs, and mentoring. The maker challange programmes offer important enrichment to young people, who would not otherwise have this explosure, and further support both SDG 4 and SDG 17.
Disaster risk reduction is embedded in target 5 for SDG 11 sustainable cities and communities. Recognising that Asia-Pacific is the most disaster-prone region in the world and the devastating impact natural disasters have on people, communities and economies, Elsevier is working with partners to advance understanding of natural disaster science and encourage collaboration between researchers and disciplines.
Oceanology International China is the only forum in Asia where industry, academia and government share knowledge and connect with the international marine science and ocean technology communities, helping organisations to improve their strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans. Developed in conjunction with government and industry associations, Oceanology International China provides domestic and international suppliers the opportunity to capitalise on China’s rapidly developing offshore energy and marine industries. This is directly related to SDG 14: Life below water and advances the SDG Target 14.a to increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity and transfer marine technology.
Oceanology International North America

Oceanology International North America's world-class exhibition and conference will help organisations reach buyers from key market regions and sectors worldwide and help them improve their strategies for measuring, developing, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.

Including gender in scientific research will maximise the impact of that research. SciDev’s new online course is designed to help students understand why gender is such an important component of research. It also explores the implications for science and global policy agendas, including the climate change agreements and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This course explores the importance of gender (SDG 5) in science and research (SDG 4).
Network organization Amsterdam Data Science (ADS) and Elsevier are collaborating together on several fronts, including research and development, joint promotion of Amsterdam as a data science center, and data science talent development. This partnership marks the first long-term collaboration agreement signed by ADS and is interetsed in advancing SDG 9 targets 5, B and C. A number of projects have already started. These are focused on improving data search and reproducibility of research that will ultimately result in higher quality research outcomes.
The New York Academy of Sciences’s Afterschool STEM Mentoring Program.
Recognising the need to support STEM education, as part of its overall commitment to SDG4, the Elsevier Foundation has partnered with the New York Academy of Sciences' (NYAS)to expand its after-school mentoring in STEM programme. Inspiring more than 1,300 Middle School students each year, the After School Program trains graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to mentor 8 -14 year olds. Now with funding from the Elsevier Foundation, the prohgramme will be expanded to reach underserved children.
