Analysing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on Scopus
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are part of a plan to end poverty, protect the planet, and improve the lives and prospects of everyone by 2030. The 15-year plan has 17 goals with 169 targets aimed at stimulating action in areas of critical importance to humanity and the environment.
Elsevier data science teams built pre-generated search queries for 16 of the SDGs. These search queries are now available as part of Scopus Advanced search and can help researchers and institutions track and demonstrate progress towards the targets of the SDGs.
The webinar will explain how the SDGs have been mapped, how they can be analysed in Scopus, and how the scientometrics community can contribute to push the boundaries even further.
