Karger Publishers has entered into an Open Access (OA) agreement with the MALMAD (Israel Center for Digital Information Services) Consortium.

Karger Publishers has finalized a comprehensive Publish & Read deal with MALMAD, which is now available to all members of the consortium. The contract allows access to all Karger eJournals including backfiles, as well as providing the option for all affiliated researchers to publish OA in Karger journals at no additional cost to authors.

With this agreement Karger Publishers will support Israeli scientists to more effectively and openly communicate their research.”
