Silverchair and Karger Publishers have announced an agreement to host Karger’s extensive portfolio of health sciences content on the Silverchair Platform.


Karger Publishers is a globally active independent publisher dedicated to serving the information needs of the scientific community, clinicians, and patients. The Karger publishing program encompasses more than 100 peer-reviewed journals (including a number of Gold and Platinum Open Access journals) and over 9,000 books, as well as video and interactive content for visualization and education.

As a more than 130-year-old publisher, Karger was looking for a platform partner with the flexibility to efficiently deliver both traditional and innovative content to all its stakeholders. On the Silverchair Platform, Karger Publishers will benefit from cloud-based hosting services, global delivery optimization, and simplified integrations to enable it to test and launch new products and services more quickly and easily. Karger Publishers also wanted to be able to selectively divide its content to serve the needs of differing customer bases – a need fulfilled by Silverchair’s suite of self-serve platform tools.

Karger Publishers joins the prestigious ranks of other Silverchair-hosted medical publishers as it supports health sciences communities by providing trusted, high-quality publications throughout their research, education, and career journeys.

“Karger Publishers sought not only modern technology and high-touch services, but also a partner with whom they could maintain a direct and personal relationship, and we welcome them to our growing community,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “We look forward to giving their first-class content the treatment and delivery experience it deserves.”

“With Silverchair, we have found the right partner to improve the platform on which we host our products and services for researchers, health professionals, and patients. Digital advancement is more important than ever, and we would like to continue to strive in this direction,” said Adrian Harper, Head of Digital Landscape at Karger Publishers.
