A new open access interdisciplinary journal from CABI and BioMed Central


CABI Agriculture and Bioscience aims to create an inclusive culture and will judge each submission on the quality of its scientific content, rather than its perceived or expected impact.

The journal will not set a rejection quota – instead it will work collaboratively with authors through rigorous peer review to bring out the quality in their work. In doing so, CABI Agriculture and Bioscience augments the accessible knowledge pool in agricultural science and supports the concept of Open Agriculture.


Niklaus Grunwald

 “I am particularly excited about the highly interdisciplinary and translational component of CABI Agriculture and Bioscience. This journal provides a critical new niche that does not currently exist. For example we might integrate research on social and economic aspects under a global climate change scenario with pest management applications using big data. Similarly, we expect that this journal will provide a means of publishing research that is directly relevant to feeding 2 billion more people by 2050. This kind of research just does not fit within the typical disciplinary journals.”

Niklaus Grünwald, Editor-in-Chief

The journal subject includes traditional themes such as plant science and plant breeding, horticulture, forestry, plant pathology, entomology and pest management, livestock and animal science, invasive species, environmental and soil science, and social sciences.

CABI Agriculture and Biosciences encourages inter- and cross-disciplinary research that connects these ‘vertical’ subject areas through ‘horizontal’ themes, including: genomics; big data; climate change; evidence-based agriculture; technology; sustainability, restoration and conservation; agro-ecology; food security and nutrition; and modelling.
