CABI is a leading global not-for-profit organization specializing in sustainable solutions for agricultural and environmental problems. Its purpose is the generation, dissemination and use of knowledge in the applied life sciences to enhance sustainable development, human welfare and the environment.
CABI is a dynamic and expanding business that brings high quality information to a global market. From the publication of our first journal, Review of Applied Entomology, in 1913, CABI has grown to become a leading international publisher of bibliographic databases, books, compendia and other scientific resources in the applied life sciences. Subject coverage includes agriculture, animal sciences, plant sciences, environmental sciences, human health, microbiology and parasitology, and leisure and tourism. Our international presence ensures the dissemination of high-quality publications throughout developed and developing countries.
CABI produces about 70 new books each year. Our list consists of research monographs, student textbooks, conference proceedings, practical handbooks for the professional reader, and major reference works, including dictionaries and encyclopedias. CABI takes pride in the international appeal of its titles, and the list of authors includes leading scientists from all continents. We publish many titles on behalf of, or in association with, a number of learned societies, research institutes, commercial companies and donor organizations. These include the research centres of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), British Crop Protection Council (BCPC), Technical Centre of Agricultural and Rural Co-operation (CTA) and the Nutrition Society. The majority of our new titles, and many of our backlist, are now available as eBooks from ebrary, NetLibrary, Dawson Books and MyiLibrary, and on our own e-book platform, CAB eBooks.
We are keen to expand our books publishing programme and welcome proposals for new titles from prospective authors and editors. Click here for more information on submitting a proposal, and the necessary forms.
Quality of design and production: Our ultimate aim is to produce a book that the authors, and we as publishers are proud of. Central to this is an extremely efficient production department dedicated to high standards of typesetting, printing, binding and design.
Worldwide marketing and distribution: Our promotional activities are undertaken on a global basis. We have an international network of distributors and agents who, together with a dedicated sales team, ensure that all CABI books are promoted worldwide to the people who make purchasing decisions. In North and Central America our books are distributed by Stylus Publishing. Additionally, our close links with academic societies enable us to penetrate niche markets. Sales of individual titles are maximized through targeted campaigns combining conference attendance, direct mail catalogues and leaflets, and e-marketing. Our online bookshop has recently been re-designed to include an enhanced search function and improved online ordering.
Focus on author care: At CABI we know that authors are vital to our success. As a small independent publisher, we are able to offer a personal service to our authors. We are committed to supporting our authors and consult them on every aspect of their book from initial proposal to the marketing of the published book. As an author, editor or contributor you will receive a 25% discount on all CABI titles.
