However, the personal rates are only granted if these conditions are met:

Medical and Scientific Associations
Ordering, Credit Cards
Note that every journal has a set of two ISSN numbers, one for the print edition and one for the online one: be sure to quote the right one depending on the delivery form you wish for your subscription; for combined print/online please indicate both.
We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Diners.
All prices are based on the Swiss Franc (CHF) and subject to change. Prices in EUR are valid for eurozone countries only, prices in USD are valid for the USA and Latin America only. Prices quoted do not include delivery charges and are excluding VAT and local sales tax. Where applicable, VAT is applied at the appropriate rate and shown separately in the final invoice.
Invoicing and Dispatch
Institutions and private persons with a subscription account directly with Karger Publishers will receive separate invoices for the different types of subscription.
An online subscription allows access only to issues published in the subscription year. New online subscribers receive instructions and their user ID/password together with the written confirmation of their order. For questions and problems contact our Front Office.
In order to facilitate the administration of online subscriptions, we offer libraries with a substantial number of Karger subscriptions the option of access regulation via IP address alone, provided there is no IP overlap or cross-accessing with other institutions. If you are interested contact us.
