Dr. Ismael Rafols, senior researcher at Leiden University in the Netherlands, will present a bibliometric analysis on how publications may be related to the various UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Rather than providing a single mapping of publications to each SDG, they propose a plural landscape for diverse stakeholders to explore the relationship according to their own views. To do so, they will describe an interactive platform that allows users to scrutinize publications related to SDGs in a global map of science. Dr. Rebecca Watts Hull from the Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain will be moderating this virtual event, and Dr. Sebnem Ozkan from the Atlanta Global Studies Center will introduce the event.
