The basic annual subscription rate is the same for all three delivery forms; however, an upgrade fee for the combined print/online subscription is levied per volume, and there is a postage and handling charge for print and combined print/online.
|Subscription rate model:|
|Print:||100% + postage and handling|

Please note that personal subscribers are entitled to a substantially reduced basic subscription rate, in most cases approx. 50%. Full details can be found on the individual journal homepages.
However, the personal rates are only granted if these conditions are met:
- The printed issues are delivered to the private address of an individual. Institutional, company or P.O. Box addresses are not acceptable.
- Complete contact information must be supplied, including e-mail address and telephone number.
- The subscription must be paid out of private funds or by personal credit card. Personal subscribers paying through group/institutional accounts must verify in writing that the journal is ordered for their personal use only.
Please note that personal online subscriptions are not transferable and access is user ID and password controlled.
Medical and Scientific Associations
Ordering, Credit Cards
Please note that every journal has a set of two ISSN numbers, one for the print edition and one for the online one: be sure to quote the right one depending on the delivery form you wish for your subscription; for combined print/online please indicate both.
We accept American Express, Diners, MasterCard, Eurocard and Visa. Please do not forget to indicate your card number and its expiry date. Credit card orders in EUR will be charged in CHF.
All prices are based on the Swiss Franc (CHF) and subject to change. Prices in EUR are valid for eurozone countries only, prices in USD are valid for the USA and Latin America only. Prices quoted do not include delivery charges and are excluding VAT and local sales tax. Where applicable, VAT is applied at the appropriate rate and shown separately in the final invoice.
Invoicing and Dispatch
Institutions and private persons with a subscription account directly with Karger Publishers will receive separate invoices for the different types of subscription.
An online subscription allows access only to issues published in the subscription year. New online subscribers receive instructions and their user ID/password together with the written confirmation of their order. For questions and problems our help desk can also be reached directly under firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to facilitate the administration of online subscriptions, we offer libraries with a substantial number of Karger subscriptions the option of access regulation via IP address alone, provided there is no IP overlap or cross-accessing with other institutions. If you are interested, please contact us under email@example.com.
