Research Areas

Research area of the source publication. A publication may have more than one research area.



Descriptors from the CAB Thesaurus that are assigned by a subject specialist at CAB International.


Broad Descriptors

Higher-level terms from the CAB Thesaurus automatically assigned to records that contain descriptors in the following fields.

  • Descriptors
  • Organism Descriptors
  • Geographic Location

For example, a record containing Orthoptera in the Organism Descriptors field will automatically have insects as a Broad Descriptor. A record containing Siberia in the Geographic Location field will automatically have Russia as a Broad Descriptor.


Organism Descriptors

Terms in this field are organism descriptors from the CAB Thesaurus for CABI preferred organism names at the appropriate level of specificity for the concept discussed. All broader level terms in the thesaurus hierarchy are automatically added to the Broad Descriptors field.



Classification codes that indicate the broad subject areas addressed by the source document. Every record in CABI has at least one CABICODE.


CAS Registry No.

A unique numeric identifier assigned to a chemical substance in the CAS Registry database. In CABI, a Registry Number is automatically assigned to this field if the record has been indexed with a chemical term from the Descriptors field, which has an associated Registry Number.


Document Information

Document Type

The selected document type. For example, Article, Book, or Conference Proceedings.

Book Chapter Count

The total number of chapters in a book.



The selected language of the source document.


Accession Number

The accession number is a unique identifying number associated with each record in the product. It consists of a product year and an item number. For example:

Accession Number: 20113373298



The International Standard Book Number is a unique machine-readable identifier that marks a book unmistakably.

The format is a 10-digit number that contains 3 hyphens (-). The last digit is a check character, which may be a number or an X. The position of the hyphens can vary for each ISBN identifier. Example: 978-0-387-36949-5



The International Standard Serial Number is a unique eight-digit number that identifies periodical publications such as journals and electronic publications. If a journal has both a print ISSN and an electronic ISSN, then both display. The format is four numbers, a hyphen (-), three numbers, and then a check character that may be a number or X. Example: 1367-4803


Number of References

Journal Information

Table of Contents: Current Content Connect®

This field contains a link to the Current Contents Connect® Browse Journals page where you can browse the table of contents of journals and books covered by the editions and collections to which you subscribe in Current Contents Connect.

Performance Trends: Essential Science IndicatorsSM

This field contains a link to Essential Science Indicators where you can perform in-depth analysis to find data for ranking scientists, institutions, countries, and journals. With Essential Science Indicators, you can:

  • Explore science performance statistics and science trends data, based on journal article publication counts and citation data
  • Determine research output and impact in specific fields of research
  • Evaluate potential employees, collaborators, reviewers, and peers

Impact Factor: Journal Citation Reports®

The Journal Impact Factor is defined as all citations to the journal in the current JCR year to items published in the previous two years, divided by the total number of scholarly items (these comprise articles, reviews, and proceedings papers) published in the journal in the previous two years.

Though not a strict mathematical average, the Journal Impact Factor provides a functional approximation of the mean citation rate per citable item.  A Journal Impact Factor of 1.0 means that, on average, the articles published one or two years ago have been cited one time.  A Journal Impact Factor of 2.5 means that, on average, the articles published one or two years ago have been cited two and a half times.  The citing works may be articles published in the same journal.  However, most citing works are from different journals, proceedings, or books indexed in Web of Science Core Collection.


Other Information

Geographic Location

The country or region discussed in the source document. Terms in this field are descriptors from the CAB Thesaurus and are allocated at the appropriate level of specificity for the concept being discussed. All broader level terms in the thesaurus hierarchy are automatically added to the Broad Descriptors field.



Identifiers are keywords that are non-preferred terms and therefore are not found in the CAB Thesaurus.

Citation Network

Times Cited

The Times Cited count displays the total number of times a published paper was cited by other papers within our database products such as Web of Science Core Collection and BIOSIS Citation Index . The link takes you to a Citing Articles page in one of our citation indexes.

Access to records is limited to your institution's subscription.


Cited References

The Cited References count displays the number of documents cited by the current record. Click the link to view the list of cited references. From there you can view the full record of each cited reference. (Access to the full records of cited references may be limited to your institution's subscription.)


To view records that share cited references with the record you are viewing in the current product database, click the View Related Records link.

The assumption behind Related Records searching is that articles that cite the same works have a subject relationship, regardless of whether their titles, abstracts, or keywords contain the same terms. The more cited references two articles share, the closer the subject relationship.

The link displays the total number of related records within one of our citation indexes such as Web of Science Core Collection or BIOSIS Citation Index .

Access to records is limited to your institution's subscription.
