Developing Resources: Supporting Publishing Success

CABI's Author Education Resources have been curated by our team of publishing experts to provide a free to access set of educational tools, services, and resources to support researchers in agriculture and bioscience to better understand and navigate the evolving landscape of scientific publishing.

Supporting you through your publishing journey

We know how important it is to you as a researcher to ensure your research is published and cited by many, but it is a long journey with many questions, 'How do I write my paper for submission?', 'How do I create a suitable cover letter?', 'What if my paper is rejected by a journal?' and 'Which journal do I choose?'

Our Author Education Services can support you through all of this and more no matter which stage of publication you're at. Review our resources below.
