27 July 2022, US: CABI has launched the exciting new CABI Digital Library – which will showcase all of CABI’s content in one location – on Atypon’s award-winning online publishing platform, Literatum.
The move is the first step in CABI’s plans to migrate all its publishing content into one platform to make it easier for students, researchers, librarians, practitioners and extension workers to access the wealth of available knowledge.
The CABI Digital Library launches with CABI’s books, journals (CABI Agriculture and Bioscience and CABI Reviews), agriRxiv, searchRxiv and cases content. It will be swiftly followed by CABI Compendia, the Plantwise Knowledge Bank, collections and its research database products (CAB Abstracts and Global Health).
It will also be home to a number of new products including CABI One Health, One Health Cases, One Health Knowledge Bank and Animal Behaviour and Welfare Cases.
CABI’s new site uses the latest advances in digital publishing to make CABI’s content more portable, allowing the discovery and browsing of content on any device, and more searchable – giving users new ways to find more relevant content, more quickly.
Content is now more centred around the author – giving authors usage and citation data and the ability to share articles more easily.
CABI has also partnered with the IP Registry. This allows institutions to manage their IP ranges in one place for a variety of platforms including the CABI Digital Library.
Dr Andy Robinson, Managing Director, Publishing at CABI, said, “We’re really excited to have reached this milestone which is the first step in making all CABI’s content available in one easily accessible place.
“Indeed, the new interface has been designed and optimized around the needs of our users to drive usage and engagement. So, whether you are a student, researcher or even practitioner, you can rest assured that the CABI Digital Library offers an intuitive user experience.
“Ultimately, the new service will help further CABI’s mission of helping to improve people’s lives worldwide by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.”
