The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the United Nations blueprint to deliver a more equitable, inclusive and sustainable society for both people and planet. Academic publishers play a pivotal role in helping to achieve these goals, both through their own organizational policies but also through the knowledge published in journals and books. Yet, it can be overwhelming for publishers to translate the SDG’s broad goals that seek to end poverty, address climate action and bring about gender equality to their daily work and organization.
STM, the leading voice for academic publishers, has created a roadmap that contains suggested concrete steps for all publishers, both big and small. From those just at the start of their journey, to others who already advanced and looking to accelerate.
Designed to inspire and support, this roadmap strives to equip colleagues across our sector by matching the practical steps with a dedicated toolkit of resources and examples to get everyone to take action towards achieving the SDGs today.
