(18 October 2016) Karger will introduce its new product Topic Article Packages to customers and partners in the current Frankfurt Book Fair. These packages consist of journal articles and book chapters individually compiled on different topics with the help of a semantic search. The first Topic Article Package to become available will cover diabetes.
“In addition to our existing collections and packages, Topic Article Packages offer a horizontal and thematically focused cross section of our publishing program which renders the original publication format secondary. The novel concept is that content can be put together according to the specific research interests of institutions and researchers. Talks with our partners showed that this product attracts a great deal of interest”, says Moritz Thommen, Director Sales.
Karger also announces its cooperation with Altmetric. The Altmetric badges can now be found on the full-text contents of Karger journals. Altmetric tracks the shares and engagement relating to Karger journal articles in online sources including the mainstream media, blogs, policy documents, and social and academic networks. Complementary to more traditional metrics, such as citations and the Impact Factor, Altmetric data offers an early indication of the visibility and influence of a publication. This is yet another service Karger provides for authors who wish to know more about the reach of their articles.
