All scientists need to publish articles or books during their career. However, Publishing is by itself a professional career. Are you interested in learning more about the Publishing world? Do you want to know what professional opportunities are out there? Which skills and qualifications are required to work as a Publisher?

At the DKFZ Career Day "Publishing" you will have the opportunity to hear directly from scientific publishers from different companies what are the opportunities and benefits of working in the Publishing sector.

At our discussion round tables you will have excellent opportunities for networking and questions. Participants will be assigned to particular round tables, so make sure to have a look at the program and speaker profiles to indicate speakers you are interested in meeting.
