About Partner Publications
Partner Publications are Platinum Open Access journals published in partnership with academic research institutions, societies, government bodies, research funders, companies and organizations in health research. Partner Publications are an integral part of the Karger journal portfolio, following the same quality and ethical standards as all Karger journals.
Benefits for Partners
Partner Publications provide the perfect opportunity to collaborate with an internationally renowned publisher, increasing global visibility and recognition of the organization’s scientific research. Partner Publications serve as a publishing hub that connects and amplifies the work of researchers from one or multiple institutions.
Partner Publications allow Partners to meet a wide spectrum of goals, whether they involve supporting the organization’s young researchers, gaining an international reputation within a specialized field or contributing to global initiatives.
Our Partners benefit from working with a transparent, agile, and reliable publisher experienced in connecting and advancing health science. This in turn can help the organizations expand their own reputation and experience in their specialized areas of knowledge.
Partners work closely with a dedicated Karger Publication Manager and can expect high-quality support as well as consulting and production services.
Typically Partner Publications are indexed in all major A&I databases.
Partners may choose from a menu of concepts specifically designed for their needs. Products and services are tailor-made to support and optimize the experience for researchers and their organizations at every stage of the research cycle.
