Human Sciences

CABI’s Human Sciences coverage goes back over 100 years and covers a variety of important areas of study and practice.

Our global health coverage gives researchers, students and public health practitioners access to relevant information to support evidence-based practice and academic and professional development. We cover key areas of global health including epidemiology,  public and community health, environmental and occupational health, nutrition, infectious diseases and parasitology, and tropical and international health.

Access to a healthy diet that includes high quality food sources is fundamental for maintaining and improving health. Nutrition and food issues such as obesity, food safety and food security have become increasingly topical worldwide as countries adapt to the globalisation of trade and spread of Western culture. Our resources continue to develop and provide researchers, students, and professionals with information and research on topics across the food supply chain including food safety, quality and composition; processing, preservation and storage; nutrition and disease; public health; nutritional physiology and biochemistry; and food policy and economics.
