CAB Abstracts

"CAB Abstracts – your access to the world’s applied life sciences research"

Now with 8.8 million records!

CAB Abstracts is the leading English-language bibliographic information service providing access to the world’s applied life sciences literature. It comes with CABI Full Textgiving users automatic access to over 350,000 journal articles, conference papers and reports (80% of which are not available electronically anywhere else). 

CAB Abstracts is available on a number of platforms including CABI's own platform www.cabdirect.org

The most comprehensive database of its kind, CAB Abstracts gives researchers instant access to over 8.8 million records* from 1973 onwards, with almost 350,000 records added last year. Its coverage of the applied life sciences includes agriculture, environment, leisure/tourism, veterinary sciences, applied economics, food science and nutrition.

Our excellent international coverage sets CAB Abstracts apart from other databases. We process all relevant publications, including less well-known and non-English journals and those published by independent and learned publishers. With publications from over 120 countries in 50 languages, including English abstracts for most articles, researchers get the fullest global picture for any subject.

Our subject specialists rigorously select relevant records from over 8,000 serials, books and conference proceedings, ensuring unparalleled coverage. As a result, we include information from more agricultural serials than any other database.

*Figures as at November 2017.

  • instant access to over 8.7 million records
  • almost 350,000 records added last year
  • international coverage, with publications from over 120 countries
  • each record hand-selected by our subject specialists from over 10,000 serials, books and conference proceedings
  • comprehensive subject indexing with the CAB Thesaurus (CABI's controlled vocabulary tool) making searching easier and providing more precise access to ALL relevant research

Used by hundreds of the world's leading institutions, including 75% of US land-grant universities, together with many of the premier universities and research centres from across the globe, CAB Abstracts is the first choice for agriculture and related applied life sciences.

"CAB Abstracts is the leading English-language bibliographic information service providing access to the world's agricultural literature. It has a longstanding reputation for comprehensive, quality abstracting and indexing, and integrity of its data. This should be the first stop for the serious researcher."
- Luti Salisbury, Librarian/Professor, Agriculture, Food and Life Sciences, University of Arkansas Libraries

 

"The search of CAB Abstracts was the most specific and yielded the most trials in the least amount of time."
- Alison Avenell, Helen G Handoll and Adrian M Grant, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

 

"This study indicates that if CAB Abstracts is available for searching the core agricultural serials, doing a literature search in any of all of the other three databases would represent a duplication of effort."
- Jodee l. Kawasaki, Indexing of Core Agricultural Serials, in IAALD
