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.
Directly relating to SDGs 3 (good health and well-being) and 12 (responsible consumption and production), this review outlines the risks of transmission of antibiotic resistance from the environment to humans.
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.
Directly contributing to SDG 3 (good health and well-being), this research explores the role in which antimicrobial peptides play in providing versatile, highly specific antimicrobial compounds in the face of growing antibiotic resistance.

This journal article addresses goals 13, 15, and 9 by exploring innovative methods in carbon dioxide conversion.
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.
To advance goal 14 (life below water), age and growth studies have been carried out on fish so that scientists and fisheries can better understand exploitation rates and assess stock levels.
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).
