Inventory of the institution’s sustainability research:

The attached pdf is an analysis on NUI Galway's Research output aligned to the UNs Sustainable Development Goals. At the bottom of this report there is an appendix which shows the sustainability research inventory. This inventory lists each researcher, their Scopus author ID and the SDG topic which their research is aligned to. The Scopus ID can be used to find their research profile online, showing the researchers department, publications and further information.


A brief description of the methodology the institution followed to complete the research inventory:

Elsevier provide a service through Scival to conduct an analysis of an institutions research output alignment to the SDGs. This is how the above inventory has been created. Scival conduct this analysis through a keyword search, highlighting topics that relate to the SDGs. In NUI Galway's case, the last 5 years of publications have been scanned and it shows that 65% of staff have at least 1 publication aligned to the SDGs in this time. More info on how Elsevier carry out this analysis is available at the link below.
