In 2015, the United Nations established 17 Sustainable Development Goals for all member countries to work towards by 2030. Controlling plastic pollution in the ocean would support many of these goals – including SDG12, which aims to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns, and SDG14, to conserve and use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development. 

We’ve published a report in collaboration with Dimensions that investigates plastic pollution in our oceans and its related research. In the report, we use Altmetric data to find out how research on the topic has been disseminated and discussed online, and the potential impact this coverage may have.
