Our latest report, The Power of Data to Advance the SDGs, shows that over the last five years SDG-related publications have reached a staggering 4.1 million articles. This presents both opportunities and challenges for our communities. We want to help them navigate this body of data so important decisions can be made based on the rich scientific knowledge. The report maps the latest sustainability research and initiatives within each SDG area with unique, easy-to-digest data and expert insights. The full methodology of the SDG search queries used to inform the analyses are freely available on Mendeley Data. We encourage the research community to make use of the datasets and take advantage of the full range of tools on Scopus and SciVal.
