Karger Publishers Strengthens Service Offering with the Acquisition of Research Publishing International

Karger Publishers has acquired the British company Research Publishing International (RPI) for an undisclosed amount.

Basel, Switzerland  () Together, RPI and Karger willsupport researchers and the Health Sciences/Healthcare ecosystem in makingscientific findings more accessible and comprehensible to a wider audience.

On 16 June 2022, Karger Publishers acquired the science communications agency
Research Publishing International, based in Gloucestershire, UK, in a move to
strengthen its publishing business and expand its service portfolio. Karger supports the
knowledge transfer cycle from scientific research to clinical practice, patients, and
caregivers through its Healthcare publications and content services. By joining forces,
RPI and Karger will also be able to provide more services to researchers who would like
to have their work translated into easily accessible language and more creative formats,
such as animations and podcasts, to reach a wider audience.

RPI is a broad service media agency specialized in working with scientists and
researchers all over the world. It streamlines research removing barriers to
communication: It helps scientists reach huge global audiences by communicating
scientific knowledge in an easy-to-understand language and an engaging creative
format. It also provides a platform for researchers to share their studies whilst ensuring
the work is in context by providing supporting data and conclusions.

Under Karger ownership, RPI will continue to operate as an independent company. It
will remain active in other verticals alongside Health Sciences and serve a wide range of
customers in the academic and corporate sphere, including publishers.

“The acquisition of RPI is a perfect addition to Karger and fully supports our strategy. It
gives us the opportunity to expand our publishing business and offer more creative
formats. It brings us closer to our goal of communicating science beyond the traditional
journal article to a broader audience, thereby connecting the various stakeholders in
health sciences,” says Daniel Ebneter, CEO at Karger Publishers.

Gabriella Karger, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors at Karger Publishers adds that:
“RPI’s slogan – ’Collaborate. Disseminate. Engage’ – is another way of saying
’Connecting and Advancing Health Sciences’, which is our claim at Karger. Our
companies’ visions and values are an ideal match, and we are thrilled to be striving
forward together”.

Simon Jones, founder of RPI, is also enthusiastic. He adds that “Research Publishing
International are very pleased to join forces with Karger. The acquisition represents the
brightest possible future for RPI, and we are all excited to become part of the Karger
family. From small acorns do mighty oaks grow: With the support of Karger we are
destined to become a mighty oak in the landscape of science communications!”.
Emma Feloy, designated Managing Director at RPI adds: “We are delighted to join
Karger. Together we will offer innovative communication tools to even more scientists
around the world, helping more people access quality research information. The
combination of Karger’s expertise and RPI’s creative services is an exciting prospect
that our whole team is excited to be part of”.
