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.

See a list of our publications from 20162015, 2014 and 2013 

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.

Annual science report


One of our aims is to produce at least 100 scientific publications each year, of which at least 30 are in journals with an impact factor of at least 2. 

In future years, we also want to explore other ways to measure the quality and impact of our scientific outputs.

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