Karger Publishers has opened a regional office in Dubai to extend its network in the Middle East. With this local presence, it is hoped that institutions and editors will get direct access to Karger products and services. At the same time Karger Publishers is also adding two regional journals to its portfolio.

The company's CEO Daniel Ebneter said: 'By opening a new office we strengthen our regional presence in this significant future market. Even in a globalised world Karger Publishers relies on personal contacts and close collaborations locally, which are particularly important in the Middle East for long-term development.'

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.
