Research alone will not make the SDGs reality. Each member of the scholarly community must put research results in the hands of practitioners. Researchers should also formulate their research agenda based on the needs of practitioners. This list provides easy-to-use ideas to encourage these connections and the resulting positive impacts. Multiple publishers provided input and the list was written by the SDG Publishers Compact Fellows.
