Authors, reviewers, Editorial Board members – the list of contributing experts along the research cycle is long. Karger Publishers appreciates the work of all involved in the process of submitting, reviewing, publishing, and promoting a paper. How do we recognize our researchers? Let’s find out.
Writing and publishing a scientific paper can be a lengthy and complex process. However, being an author is essential to every researcher. It is a learned skill that is perfected over many years in a scientist’s career. Authors have individual needs. Some of them might be at the start of their career writing their first paper, others might be researchers with years of experience in writing and submitting manuscripts. Some work at institutes where they have support from their peers, others work in smaller institutes with less resources. We offer many services and courses that aim to cover the needs of each of them.
