Karger Publishers expands in the Middle East
On March 25, Karger Publishers opened a new Regional Office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates – an important step in expanding its existing business activities in the Middle East.
"By opening a new office we strengthen our regional presence in this significant future market. Even in a globalized world Karger Publishers relies on personal contacts and close collaborations locally, which are particularly important in the Middle East for long-term development," says Daniel Ebneter, CEO of Karger Publishers. The overall goals are to establish the Karger brand, win key academic institutions as partners for the entire publication program and services, and develop an editorial network in the Middle East. The new office is responsible for the Middle Eastern region, which includes Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
Along with the new branch, Karger Publishers is also adding two scientific journals to its portfolio: International Journal of Diabetes and Metabolism and Dubai Medical Journal. Both journals have been developed in cooperation with the Dubai Health Authority and are Free Open Access (No «Article Processing Charge», Gold Open Access).
