Working with CAB Abstracts and Global Health

Our full text content coverage works perfectly with CAB Abstracts and Global Health, providing hard to find material from across, agriculture, health and the life sciences:

Benefits of full text
  • Preserves and archives material that is hard to find, and that previously have been lost to the scientific community
  • Allows these documents to be found easily by searching the CAB Abstracts database
  • Saves the user the time (and expense) of trying to locate documents that are difficult to find
  • Meets user expectations to find the full text of material they see indexed in CAB Abstracts
  • Places valuable, hard-to-find documents alongside the main-stream literature, ensuring that researchers have access to all relevant documents, not just those that are readily available
  • Ensures that knowledge and information presented at conferences and in reports is disseminated throughout the scientific community
  • Ensures researchers have access to the very latest research - For example many important papers are available in the form of conference proceedings months before a completed research paper is published. This puts conference proceedings at the forefront of research
  • Contains the full volume set including archives of a growing number of journals
  • While we do cover some material that may be currently free to view on the internet, inclusion in CABI's full text ensures that there will never be lost articles or broken links
International Focus

The international focus of our full text content means that your users have access to a wide cross-section of global research. All areas of the world are represented including developing countries.

Percentage of full text journal titles by geographical area*:

Europe 34%
Indian sub-continent 21%
Central and South America 12%
Asia 11%
Middle East 9%
North America 7%
Africa 4%
North America 7%
Australasia 1%
Russia <1%
