CABI to Add Abstracts Archive

CABI Publishing (, a division of CAB International, says it is "on the verge" of launching CAB Abstracts Archive. Covering the literature from 1910 to 1972, the archive will make more than 1,860,000 records on every aspect of agricultural science, veterinary medicine, nutrition, and natural resources available electronically for the very first timeóand with re-indexed records. It will be available on the CAB Direct platform in the second quarter of 2005, on Ovid and SilverPlatter in the third quarter, and on other platforms after that.

CABI says the archive will combine 17 printed abstract journals (the equivalent of 600 volumes) into a single electronic database, bringing to light important research that has been "lost." To ensure that the archive is fully searchable, CABI Publishing has completely re-indexed all records. Obsolete terms have been replaced with modern equivalents to allow today's researchers full and immediate access to the research of the past.

CAB Abstracts contains more than 4.5 million records dating from 1973 to the present. More than 6,000 academic journals and 3,500 other documents are scanned and abstracted annually to go onto the database. Together the two databases will provide access to almost 100 years of scientific knowledge.
