However, we have realized that an international publisher specializing in scientific publications like De Gruyter will be able to develop the potential of these titles more fully.

Carsten Buhr, Managing Director of De Gruyter, adds: “We are extremely happy to be able to expand our portfolio with the scientific journals of Carl Hanser. They are a great addition that will greatly enrich our portfolio. We will continue to develop the journals with editors with the same level of intensity and dedication as we did with Carl Hanser. Journals will also benefit from our global distribution network and digital platform. "
