Thieme and Schattauer launch new open access journal TH Open

Thieme has joined forces with Schattauer Publishers to launch a new open access journal: TH Open. It will provide updates on the latest developments in vascular medicine, complementing Schattauer's established subscription title Thrombosis and Haemostasis. The new open access journal will follow the PWYW (pay what you want) pricing strategy, which leaves the decision of how much the publication of an article in the new English-language journal is worth up to the author. TH Open will be officially introduced at the ISTH 2017 Congress, the global meeting in thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology to be held in Berlin on July 8 - 13, 2017.

Vascular medicine research continuously develops new diagnostic tools and treatments for vascular diseases ranging from arteriosclerosis and thrombosis to strokes. "TH Open is a significant new opportunity for the rapid dissemination of knowledge in this crucial field, satisfying the growing demand for up-to-date articles and results," says Daniel Schiff, MD, Senior Vice President, Thieme Publishers. The open access journal will complement Schattauer's established journal Thrombosis and Haemostasis, which celebrates its 60-year anniversary in 2017.

Interested authors are welcome to submit original articles and clinical studies as well as review articles and case studies for online publication in TH Open. Submissions will be reviewed by internationally recognized experts, and authors will also benefit from the quality-driven editing and high visibility due to Thieme’s highly experienced and driven marketing teams.

All relevant submission and publication information for TH Open is available on Thieme Open at The online platform provides a complete overview of the multiple open access publication options offered by the Thieme Group. Authors can currently choose between 28 open access journals. All articles published in open access journals are freely available to readers via the Thieme Online Books & Journals Platform.

The first open access journal with PWYW pricing strategy, The Surgery Journal, was launched by Thieme in the summer of 2015. TH Open follows the same principle: once an article passes the peer review process, the author can decide which publication fee he or she is willing to pay. "The issue of value, and its perception in the Open Access world, is a very interesting question that we are continuing to study with TH Open, in collaboration with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität of Munich’s School of Management and Department of Economics," Daniel Schiff shares.

Thieme Stresses Importance of Publishers’ Role in Defending the Independence of Science

Thieme Publishing Group, one of the major providers of medical and health publications, media and services, strongly advocates the freedom of scientific inquiry and publication. The publisher also underlines this commitment by contributing to the current campaign launched by the German Publishers’ and Booksellers’ Association (Börsenverein des Deutschen Buchhandels). In an editorial published in various English-language Thieme journals, Dr. Daniel Schiff, Senior Vice President of Thieme Group’s U.S. subsidiary Thieme Publishers, stresses the key role publishers play in distributing high-quality, peer-reviewed academic information.

Academic publishers, Dr. Schiff says, are responsible for coordinating the process of knowledge preparation and distribution. New scientific insights are evaluated and selected through professional review processes, including peer-review, before they are edited, didactically enhanced, and processed for publication in renowned academic journals. In addition, publishers ensure the promotion as well as systematic distribution and archiving of these results in cooperation with academic libraries and multiple other partners. In his editorial published in numerous Thieme journals, Schiff states: “In these activities we help build, protect and conserve the integrity of the corpus of scientific knowledge.”

Dr. Schiff also stresses the importance of marking and defending the line between corroborated facts and unconfirmed claims, saying that “we have and will continue to validate and distribute peer-reviewed data and content, whether consistent or not with assumed truths. In these uncertain times, these are values which always need defending.”

In more than 150 journals, Thieme Publishing Group provides regular updates on the latest research and practical insights.
