Using the SDGs for product development
Andrew Kelly, Managing Editor, Taylor & Francis, Oxfordshire
As part of our commitment to SDG4, we want to make it easy for our readers to find research on the SDGs and for our authors to find relevant journals where they can share their research.
Working with our editors in the BEES team (Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences), we mapped each of our journals against the 169 SDG targets to assess which corresponded to each journal’s primary objectives. We discovered that many of our journals were publishing research related to SDGs but could highlight the link to those targets better.
We are working to re-articulate the aims and scopes of our journals to help authors and readers link to the right journals for their work on the SDGs. We have also commissioned editorials and special issues to focus on SDGs and give prominence to dedicated SDG research.
