Intensified Use of Digital Technologies
With Karger Research scientists will be able to turn to Karger Publishers along the whole research cycle and not just when they are ready to publish their results. Services and partnerships in the Open Research space will be announced soon.
With Karger Healthcare we support the knowledge transfer from scientific research to clinical practice through its Healthcare publications and content services. The portfolio for clinicians is centered around the Kompass journals, the Fast Facts handbooks and, most recently, several endeavors in the areas of digital and educational applications. A further level of knowledge transfer to patients and their caregivers is offered in guidebooks, doctor-patient interaction material, and topic-specific online content.
Cycle of Knowledge
As a publisher we are dedicated to serving the information needs of the scientific community, clinicians, and patients. With our strategy we aim to cover the whole cycle of knowledge, starting with research planning and concluding with the transfer of scientific findings to healthcare professionals, patients and caregivers.
In June 2022, we acquired the science communications agency Research Publishing International (RPI), based in Gloucestershire, UK, in a move to strengthen our publishing business and expand our service portfolio. In addition to supporting the knowledge transfer cycle we will also offer new services: By joining forces, RPI and Karger will also be able to provide more services to researchers who would like to have their work translated into easily accessible language and more creative formats, such as animations and podcasts, to reach a wider audience.
