Navigating Research towards SDGs

A new report reveals that global research is increasingly being redirected towards addressing poverty, reducing inequality and tackling the effects of climate change.

The report, Navigating the Structure of Research on Sustainable Development Goals, is based on analysis of data in the Web of Science, covering 33,000 journals.

The annual count of documents identified by this method found fewer than 100 papers per year before 2010, rising to more than 500 core papers in 2016, the year after the publication of the 17 SDGs, and a wider dataset of 4,000 cited papers in 2018.
