Thank you for your journal submission. I am pleased to say it has been accepted for inclusion in the CAB Abstracts database. I am also writing to tell you about a full text repository that has been developed by CABI.
As you know, CABI (https://www.cabi.org) is an intergovernmental, not-for-profit organisation, providing information and scientific services in the developed and developing world. The CAB Abstracts database aims to document the world's published literature in plant and animal science, agriculture, food, forestry and related subjects. The Global Health database is dedicated to public health research and practice.
The CAB Abstracts and Global Health databases are valued by researchers and librarians because of the wide range of published material covered including conference proceedings, books, reports and journals published world wide. However, many of these documents are difficult for the researchers and librarians to locate. Although many journals and conference proceedings are now being published on the internet, links to these are often changed or broken and when internet sites are redesigned older documents are often discarded.
In response to these issues, CABI has created a repository of full text material where documents can be located by searching the CAB Abstracts and Global Health databases. By including the scientific papers from Village and Development in the repository we can ensure that they are preserved and easily located by scientists and professionals throughout the world, both now and in the future. This would also be a valuable way of promoting the journal and its research amongst the global users of both databases.
