To connect the world of biomedicine we rely on a solid network of strong partners. They support us in our endeavor to produce and distribute high-quality scientific content and to offer our customers and stakeholders the high standards of services they deserve and demand.
As a company, we are committed to create, nourish and maintain direct, personal relationships with all our partners and stakeholders. This tenet is central to our identity as a publisher and is shared and lived by Karger employees across functions, divisions and hierarchy.
We take pride in cultivating our wide network of authors, reviewers, editorial board members and editors around the globe. A free online Karger Gazette article published for the company jubilee portrays the editors-in-chief of Karger journals and book series, celebrating the significant contribution of The People behind Our Publications.
Karger Publishers has formed close working ties on journal level with professional societies in most medical specialties and related domains, such as ORCA, ETA, EURETINA, ESPE and DGHO. Details on a journal’s affiliations are included in its web pages. The journal homes comprehensively list abstracting and indexing services for each individual journal as well, with service partners ranging from PubMed, MEDLINE and Google Scholar to Web of Science, Chemical Abstracts Service or OCLC’s WorldCat to mention just a few.
The specialized knowhow of our business partners in IT, digital and library science and other sectors enables us to constantly improve, enrich and broaden our services for the international scientific community. We collaborate with Altmetric, Kudos, Figshare, CrossRef, Rightslink, Portico as well as COUNTER and HINARI and forge new alliances and working relationships when and where needed.
On company level Karger invests itself in international and national associations in the publishing industry such as STM, OASPA and ISMMP (see also Corporate Memberships).
