The UN Sustainable Development Goals (https://sdgs.un.org/goals) set out a blueprint for a sustainable future. The challenges that the Goals address have intensified since their adoption, and science-based solutions are needed now more than ever. The creation of the SDG Publishers Compact in 2020 recognises the crucial role of publishers in raising awareness and communicating knowledge about the SDGs.
The Goals offer opportunities for collaboration and connection across disciplines and sectors, and engagement with authors and readers outside of a journal’s core audience. In this session, panelists representing different parts of the research ecosystem will share their experience on topics including finding the points of connection between your journal and the Goals, publishing cross-disciplinary research, engaging in cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral collaborations, and developing content to enhance relevance to non-academic audiences. The discussion will provide practical advice to help you and your journal along your journey toward engaging with the SDGs.
