About CABI Open Access

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's 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.

Open access tools and resources

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

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

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

Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

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

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

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

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

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, making data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable)

We advise the CGIAR in 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, helping them put the incentives in place to help make policy stick

Good data sharing and management policy and practice in Rwanda will underpin 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 maximisng outputs for the farmer
