Outputs, studies & papers

CABI conducts science to find practical solutions to the most pressing problems in agriculture and the environment, whether it’s working out how to stop pests destroying a crop or measuring the effects invasive species are having in a specific region.

Below are lists of recent scientific publications, Working Papers and reports that we have produced.

Abstracts of CABI’s extensive science output is now openly accessible to external users. For the first time it is possible to search for what CABI's scientists have published on a particular subject.

Search CABI's scientists' output. You can find nearly all publications since 2009 and CABI first author publications pre-2009. Currently almost 3,000 publications are included.

Our collection of impact case studies show how we are turning our mission into positive, practical action for the benefit of farmers, extensionists, researchers, decision-makers and professional practitioners around the world.

A systematic review is a tool to support decision-making by providing an independent, unbiased and objective assessment of the evidence.

CABI has a review team who are experienced in providing independent Systematic Reviews in international development and agriculture. Using their expertize and in-depth knowledge they systematically collect and review the existing evidence base to assess the question/ problem.

Read more and see some of our systematic reviews.

We have produced a science review of which details our progress and acheivements since 2009.

CABI's science strategy

Our science strategy outlines CABI’s strategic objectives and priority research areas to support the delivery of the CABI medium term strategy. It provides a medium-term context for shorter-term decisions and to guide programme and project development, planning and resource allocation.
