Medicine & Life Sciences

Back to Editorial Overview


Most famous for our clinical dictionary Pschyrembel and its various publications, De Gruyter’s Medicine & Life Sciences department publishes textbooks and journals covering a wide variety of medical fields.

In addition to our internationally renowned journals, we also offer a wide range of practical manuals with clinically relevant, secure scientific information.

With an average of 30 new titles published each year, on top of a storied backlist of over 300 titles, our portfolio is also rapidly growing, particularly in the subject areas of Gynaecology, Laboratory Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Surgery.

We also have very well-known partnerships with groups like the European Society of Pharmacogenomics and Theranostics and the World Association of Perinatal Medicine.

Combined together, our program not only serves the academic market, but also accompanies physicians through each stage of their careers – from student to specialist.
