Sugar Industry Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research on the sugar industry.
Sugar Industry Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research on the sugar industry. Sugar Industry Abstracts brings you the latest information on the sugar industry, from the agronomy of sugarcane and sugarbeet to economics, nutrition and health.
Derived from CAB Abstracts, the database of applied life sciences and related topics, it includes all aspects of sugar crop breeding and agronomy (electronic version only), the manufacture of sugar from cane and beet, sugar refining, machinery, byproducts and their uses, sucrochemicals, plant-based fuel ethanol production, environmental issues, nutritional and economic aspects, and artificial sweeteners.
Each week Sugar Industry Abstracts delivers all the latest searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about the sugar industry.
Created and indexed by subject specialists, SIA provides access to these abstracts using comprehensive indexing and classification codes. The database includes a fully searchable backfile to 1977 of over 77,000 abstracts with over 3,000 new records added each year.
Sugar Industry Abstracts is updated weekly online; the majority of its content is also available in print, delivered every other month with author, subject and serials cited indexes.
