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.
