How do I submit a manuscript?

Please select your journal at www.karger.com/journal. On the journal’s home page, click on Guidelines and you will find the link to the Manuscript Submission in the navigation menu on the right side of the Submission Website. Please read the Guidelines for Authors before submitting a manuscript. In case you have forgotten your password, you will also find a Forgot your password? function.

Any problems and queries regarding the submission process should be addressed directly to the editorial office. Full contact details can be found in the e-mail you received, under Journal Contact, or in the Guidelines on the journal’s homepage.

In order to log into the Submission Website, please click on Online Submission in the navigation menu on the right side of the journal’s homepage. Please bear in mind that the MyKarger login is for readers/subscribers and pay-per-view customers only and will not lead you to the Submission Website.

When will my accepted manuscript become available on PubMed?

As soon as your manuscript has been approved for publication and given ‘ok to print’ status by the Karger editorial team, we supply the article-level metadata to Medline. Usually within 48 hours, the abstract of the final version of your manuscript appears on Medline with the status ‘PubMed as supplied by publisher’. (During this phase, essential updates and corrections to the article can be made by the publisher.) Soon after, the article status changes to ‘PubMed – in process’, during which time indexing is being executed for your article. After final indexing has been completed by Medline, the status of your article changes to ‘PubMed – indexed for Medline’. The entire process can take up to 4–6 weeks. Please note that although your article may appear on Medline within 48 hours of online publication, it will not be fully indexed in Medline with MeSH terms until it attains ‘PubMed – indexed for Medline’ status.

Where can I find information about submitting a manuscript?
