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).
Supporting progress towards SDG's 12 (responsible consumption and production) and 14 (life below water), this review discusses microplastic and nanoplastic occurrence in freshwater ecosystems and explores current analytical methods used to characterise them.

This commentary critically explores methods used to reduce implicit bias surrounding SDG 5 (gender equality) within science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.
This Canadian study identifies gender pay gaps in research funding are attributable to less favourable assessments of women investigators, not of the quality of their proposed research. Developing SDG 5 (gender equality) and SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth), this research article identifies strategies to foster fair and rigorous academia peer review systems.
