Welcome to Karger

From our pioneering work in medical publishing in 1890 with our first medical handbooks, through the many years perfecting our knowledge of medical publishing and now going beyond – get to know Karger and see how we can support you.

With our mission “Connecting and Advancing Health Sciences” we put our customers, partners and employees at the center of everything we do. And we achieve this by creating services and products that support researchers right from the beginning in the lab and continue through to the final work of disseminating or translating results to a broader public, including healthcare professionals and patients. From researchers to librarians and institutions to the healthcare industry, we aim to empower everyone through accessible education.

With our many years of experience in health sciences, we support our corporate partners in reaching their audiences through the right channels. As one solution does not fit all, we rely on an omni-format approach to address the respective community through various media.
