What we do


Science is the basis for progress. Thieme supports researchers in medicine and chemistry worldwide in making their findings visible on attractive platforms.

Researchers in the laboratory

Accompanying progress

The constant change in medicine and chemistry is driven by science. Thieme promotes the transfer of knowledge into practice, and facilitates the scientific discourse on which every discovery is based. This knowledge unfolds its benefits in patient care or drug development when applied. Physicians make diagnoses and select therapies on the basis of evidence-based findings. Chemists develop new and efficient synthesis methods on the basis of experiments conducted by their colleagues.

Spreading knowledge

We offer scientists attractive publication options ranging from journals to digital platforms for sharing their research results with the scientific community. From our broad and constantly growing portfolio of journals, authors can flexibly choose the medium and open access model that suits them best. They also have the opportunity to actively shape the transfer of knowledge in their field as editors or reviewers.

Open Science

Thieme is purposefully driving the dissemination of scientific findings with various cooperation partners. To this end, we have signed Read & Publish agreements with library consortia and research institutions. In addition, we are opening up renowned subscription journals for open access publications and transferring selected titles to gold-standard open access offerings. We make medical articles and chemical structures available to scientific networks and databases. The rights of our authors are assets we carefully protect. At the same time, we adhere to the requirements of important research funders.
