Over the past five years, we have used data and analytics to help the research and healthcare communities navigate the sea of research and to put collaboration, both interdisciplinary and international, at the heart of scientific progress on the SDGs.

For the first time, we have published graphics covering all SDGs using data and insights from Scopus and SciVal. These graphics show key metrics for research output, collaboration and impact.

The new 2030 sustainable development agenda is likely to dominate policy and academic debates at both national and international levels over next 15 years and beyond. It is, therefore, a crucial time to critically reflect how the SDGs are likely to shape - and be shaped by - the wider research community. Each peer-reviewed paper will address the common question of: “how is the SDG agenda influencing scholarly debates in different research areas, and vice-versa?”.

The sixth RELX SDG Inspiration Day took place on Wednesday 24 June 2020 with nearly 400 representatives from business, NGOs, academia and civil society. The Inspiration Day gave hope that, although the pandemic has created significant barriers to meeting the SDGs by 2030, global collaboration is our best bet for overcoming them.
Multidisciplinary analytical techniques allow us to examine the presence and behaviour of pollutants in complex atmospheric, terrestrial, aquatic, and living compartments of ecosystems. This book chapter advances SDGs 6, 13 and 15.

Water footprint (WF) measures human appropriation of water resources for consumptive use of surface and ground water (blue WF) and soil water (green WF) and for assimilating polluted water (grey WF). Questions have been often asked about the exact meaning behind the numbers from WF accounting. However, to date environmental sustainability of WF has never been assessed at the sub-national level over time. This study evaluated the environmental sustainability of blue, green and grey WF for China's 31 mainland provinces in 2002, 2007 and 2012, and identified the unsustainable hotspots.
Leaders require new tools to make better strategic decisions in an increasingly complex and uncertain environment. The World Economic Forum offers Strategic Intelligence as an engagement option to help you understand the global forces at play and make informed decisions that will have a positive impact on your organisation. The platform contributes to a range of SDGs, including Goals 9 and 17.

The article furthers SDG 17 by providing a systematic review of research linking corporate social responsibility (CSR) and human resource management (HRM). It proposes a political view on CSR–HRM as the perspective most suitable to address challenges for a socially conscious HRM.

For the purpose of this study, innovation is defined as the implementation of new or improved ways of promoting social change. The researchers draw primarily on the social innovation literature given the nature of sport for development and peace (SDP), with a clear emphasis on innovations related to social change and how these SDP entities utilize sport-based initiatives to help address broader development goals. This relates to SDGs 3, 16 and 17.
The latest analysis of SDG-supporting research focusses on SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. This graphic shows key metrics for research into Sustainable Cities.
