  • Portrait Fernando Schmitt
    I have many colleagues around the world that ask young people to review papers without any instructions beforehand, with no explanation of any guidelines that you can follow to review papers. The "How to review a paper" Campus course that Karger offers is extremely useful. I say to my fellow residents that review papers with me: "Before you start to review papers, do this course."

    Timeliness and attention to detail
    I collaborated with Karger on an electronic publication and course: ‘Fast Facts — Ulcerative colitis’.
    The book is available worldwide and I expect it to be an invaluable resource to general gastroenterologists, fellows in gastrointestinal training, and allied healthcare professionals looking after people with ulcerative colitis.
    Working with Karger, especially with Dr. Mathisen, a medical writer, has been a pleasure and a privilege. The professionalism, timeliness, and attention to detail have been exemplary.

How To Get Your Biomedical Paper Published

A Practical Guide for Graduate Students and Postdocs

This book is a modern, practical guide that will help you transform your important research data into a scientific paper that can be submitted for publication to a peer-reviewed international journal. It explains the process of designing each section of a research paper and assembling its parts into a coherent and logical “story” that will be read and understood, remembered, and cited.

The book is a must-have for international graduate students and postdocs who feel the need to publish their data in our tough and highly competitive research environment.

With its many timely links to online resources, this guide will not only help you improve and optimize your paper writing skills but also show you how to get your biomedical paper published successfully.

Purchase single copies of the book online or for a bulk purchase offer in combination with e-learning, a webinar or a workshop.


‘How to get your biomedical paper published’ is an excellent booklet and I wish it had been available when I was writing my own first publications. I can recommend the booklet to doctoral students and postdocs.

Former Deputy of the Vice Rector for Research, University of Basel
