Editage & CABI announce strategic partnership for author services to help authors succeed in research publishing

(Jan 20, 2021) Editage, the flagship brand of Cactus Communications (CACTUS), a technology company accelerating scientific advancement announced a partnership with CABI (Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International) for author services. CABI, a non-profit organization, is committed to improving lives worldwide by providing information and applying expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.

Under this partnership, authors associated with CABI will utilize Editage’s world-class editing, translation, and research communication services. It will help their researchers and other stakeholders, such as research project managers and communication leads, with creating and disseminating research summaries in high-engagement formats such as videos, infographics, visual abstracts, and smart posters. Though this partnership, CABI will be able to support authors to promote their published paper and thus help extend the reach and impact of their research. Editage will help the author with tools to communicate their research findings to a broader audience thereby expanding the reach of its author services ecosystem.

Commenting on the partnership Donald Samulack, Head, Global Stakeholder Engagement, Cactus Communications, said, “We are extremely happy to partner with CABI for providing author services through Editage. Authors involved with CABI will have access to best-in-class editorial and research communication services that can be leveraged to build successful research programs. They will be able to disseminate their research with a larger set of audiences through various engaging methods and platforms. This will help CABI to support their global stakeholder community as well.“

The services benefit a wide range of CABI authors including those who are publishing in English as a second language or emerging researchers in low- to middle-income countries where research developments are key but funding for language and dissemination support may be limited. The communication services help build and develop the authors’ professional profiles by helping to increase awareness of their published papers and increasing citations.

Andy Robinson, Managing Director of CABI’s Publishing and Knowledge Business said: “We are really excited to provide this collection of services to help authors from around the world to improve the quality and real-world impact of their research in agriculture and bioscience. We know that many researchers struggle to communicate the value of their work when English is not their first language, which limits their success to publishing in international journals. In combination with agriRxiv, the preprint service for agriculture and allied sciences, our own CABI Agriculture and Bioscience open access journal, and a collection of other educational resources for authors, we are working to increase access to global audiences for CABI’s authors.”

CABI provides valuable research and evidence-based information and turns it into practical knowledge and resources for use around the world to support study, research and practice.
