Virtual Workshop | Identifying and Labeling Scholarly Work with Sustainable Development Goals
Tuesday, April 19
12-1 p.m.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are increasingly being used as a framework to categorize and analyze scholarship such as research articles. Commercial entities such as RELX (Elsevier) and Digital Science are mapping SDG research and these efforts have an effect on research visibility, university ranking programs, and can tie directly to OSU’s land-grant mission and opportunities such as the APLU Public Impact Research initiative.

This session will help participants recognize how research is being categorized by SDG, how to find SDG-related research, and generate a plan for describing and highlighting their own work.

Presenters will:

  • Discuss how scholarly publications are being mapped to various SDGs by various parties, how this data is being used, and the opportunities and problems with this approach.
  • Illustrate how to use databases such as Scopus and Dimensions to identify SDG-related research
  • Demonstrate how SciVal can be used to view and explore SDG-related research at OSU
  • Instruct attendees on how to apply SDG labels to their work in Experts Directory
  • Detail strategies for describing your work using the SDGs
