This microplastics special issue compiled by Trends in Analytical Chemistry supports many of the SDGs, namely SDGs 3 (good health and well-being), 9.5 (enhance scientific research), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).

Focussing on SDG's 3 (good health and well-being), 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review piece identifies limitations in current methodologies and practices used to study microplastics in seafood. Future studies may be improved by harmonising research methods, including sampling, isolation, quantification, polymer identification, and contamination management procedures.
Elsevier, the global information and analytics business specializing in science and health, is making over 5,000 subscription articles on climate change freely available for a test period. The articles contribute knowledge to advance Goal 13, Climate Action and are available through Mendeley, the reference manager and academic social network.

This collection of articles focusses on SDG 14 (life below water). Every coastal State, including several members of G20, face threats to marine ecosystems and the environment as complex societal, economic and governance challenges. Ocean management involves multi-disciplinary science and complex issues of policy design, while implementation demands consultative decision making and long term capacity development.

This research develops SDGs 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). A new recycling process of the common plastic polyethylene terephthalate (PET) could help with the urgent problem of ever-increasing amounts of plastic waste in our oceans and the environment.
This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.

This review discusses the need for standardized research methodologies within freshwater microplastic research. Standardized techniques will improve the accuracy of microplastic abundance records within freshwater environments, supporting progress towards SDG 14 (life below water) and 12 (responsible consumption and production).
