Annual report 2017

In 2017, we surpassed one thousand published articles in peer-reviewed journals and we hosted the fourth international conference on resilience and sustainability science. Another year to be proud of, we think

Story highlights

  • We hosted together with the Resilience Alliance and the Beijer Institute the fourth Resilience conference and the second to be held in Stockholm
  • In 2017, journal publications by SRC researchers passed one thousand articles with 25 per cent of them in journals with an impact factor of four or higher
  • We also launched “Transformative business leadership for a prosperous planet”, an executive programme designed for CEOs, chairpersons, and executive VPs

Coinciding with our ten-year anniversary (stay tuned for more on that...) we hosted, together with the Resilience Alliance and the Beijer Institute, the fourth Resilience conference. This is the second resilience conference to be held in Stockholm, the ­first was in April 2008.

At the Resilience 2017 conference the number of presenters had doubled and just as in the first conference, the quality of the presentations was consistently high. Artistic productions, not only visual art and music, but dance and performance, formed an important part of the conference, but now no longer seemed radical as they were woven into the very fabric of what it means to think, feel and know about resilience.

We are seeing a very interesting and important trend towards increasing social-ecological systems research for sustainable development. In 2017, journal publications by SRC researchers passed one thousand articles with 25 per cent of them in journals with an impact factor of four or higher.

Citations of SRC publications continue to increase, exceeding 7800 in 2017 alone and is now beyond 30,000 in total in ISI web of Science. Three of the 2017 articles were acknowledged as ‘highly cited papers’ by Essential Science Indicators, and about 8% (>70 publications) of all SRC papers from over the past decade. Highly cited papers are those that received enough citations to place them in the top 1% of its academic ­field. One paper in Science was recognized as a ‘hot paper’. Hot papers are those that received enough citations in the last two years to place them in the top 0.1% of papers in its academic ­field.

In 2017, we also launched Transformative business leadership for a prosperous planet, an executive programme that will provide a science-based, future-oriented, and business driven introduction to the most relevant insights, concepts, and tools within sustainability science and resilience thinking. Designed for CEOs, chairpersons, and executive VPs, the programme will explore how their business influence, and is affected by, global change.

2018 will be an exciting year but let us look back all the excitement from 2017. There was plenty.
