About CABI Open Access

Our CABI Open Access programme makes key tools and research freely available, in order to contribute to our mission of solving problems in agriculture and the environment.

CABI believes that a crucial way to solve problems in agriculture and the environment is by creating, managing, curating and disseminating information. Through our experience in scientific research, publishing, knowledge management and communications, we put know-how into the hands of the people who need it most.

CABI Open Access tools and resources

CABI’s global Action on Invasives programme aims to protect and improve the livelihoods of rural communities. It provides an environmentally sustainable, regional, and cross-sectoral approach to managing invasive species.

An open access preprint service giving researchers the opportunity to share scientific discoveries and explore new research to inform agricultural science, policies and practice.

A free, web-based tool that enables users to discover information about registered biocontrol and biopesticide products around the world.

High quality research, freely available to read and download. Our open access titles cover agriculture, plant sciences and public health.

A broad-scope, open access journal publishing original research and data across agriculture and the biosciences. It includes plant science, climate change, soil science and social sciences.

A transdisciplinary open access journal focusing on the interconnections between humans, animals, plants, ecosystems, and their shared environment.

The portal provides a comprehensive and accessible common platform for FAW researchers to share their findings and collaborate with other researchers in FAW research.

The Horizon Scanning Tool supports decision making and helps you identify, categorize and prioritize invasive species threats.

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide.

An open access gateway to plant health information and services – from diagnostic and management advice to maps of pest locations and customized alerts on pest news.

Data sharing services

Through our projects and services, we work in partnership with our national systems, donors and partners to improve access to development, scientific and operational data in agriculture and food systems. Together we identify and map challenges to data access and co-create policy and practice solutions.

We help the Gates Foundation and its grantees make better data-informed decisions in Africa and South Asia. Working especially with national agriculture systems in Ethiopia and India, we support data sharing and making data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).

We advise CGIAR on how to update their Open Access and Data Management Policy to bring it in line with current research and good practice on data sharing and data management. This helps them to put the incentives in place to help make policy stick.

Good data sharing and management policy and practice in Rwanda will underpin the development of next generation agricultural decision support. RwaSIS will provide data on soil properties and crop yields to ministries, soil scientists and fertilizer companies, to ensure that soils are managed sustainably while maximising outputs for farmers.
