Core Agriculture Serials
Out of 545 serials identified as “Core Agricultural Serials”:

Agricola indexed                                            259 or 47.5%

Biological & Agricultural Index Plus indexed                116 or 21.3%

BIOSIS Biological Abstracts indexed                         311 or 57.0%

CAB Abstracts indexed                                       498 or 91.4%

 “This study indicates that if CAB Abstracts is available for searching the
core agricultural serials, doing a literature search in any or all of the other
         three databases would represent a duplication of effort”
