As a license manager at a leading global medicines company, I negotiate the licenses for the Karger e-journals and e-books. Karger provides content relevant to our associates, and our statistics show that the content is well-used. I highly recommend working with Karger, particularly because of their professionalism and friendly, personal relationships with their business partners.
License manager at a leading global medicines company
An important step in the transition to open accessKarger was one of the first publishers MALMAD signed a Read & Publish agreement with. We were very pleased to renew our Read & Publish agreement with Karger for three more years, covering costs for Israeli researchers at participating institutions to publish an unlimited number of Open Access articles in Karger’s journals both Hybrid and Gold, whilst also giving them reading access. Our continuous cooperation with Karger is an important step in the transition to Open Access.
