Managing knowledge

Managing knowledge

CABI believes that a crucial way to solve problems in agriculture and the environment is by creating, managing, curating and disseminating information. Through our experience in scientific research, publishing, knowledge management and communications we can put know-how into the hands of the people who need it most.

We produce key scientific publications, including CAB Abstracts (the world-leading database covering agriculture and environment) and Global Health (the definitive bibliographic database for public health information).

Behind each of our products is a team of subject specialists committed to delivering the most relevant and authoritative information to researchers worldwide. Our expertise includes agriculture, animal and veterinary sciences, environmental sciences, human health, food and nutrition, leisure and tourism, microbiology and parasitology, and plant sciences.

We also publish multimedia compendia, books, eBooks and full text electronic resources aiming to further science and its application to real life. Read more about our publishing programme.

CABI hosts the GODAN Secretariat. In line with global movements for open data and open access, the GODAN initiative seeks to:

Advocate for open data and open access policies by default, in both public and private sectors, whilst respecting and working to balance openness with legitimate concerns in relation to privacy, security, community rights and commercial interests

Advocate for the release and re-usability of data in support of innovation and economic growth, improved service delivery and effective governance, and improved environmental and social outcomes

CABI has a long track record in curating and managing the world's agricultural data.
