As a specialist publishing firm known throughout the world, Beta has now been producing publications catering to the needs of physicians, dentists and decision-makers working in the commercial healthcare sector for getting on for 40 years.
Our international orientation was one of our most distinctive characteristics from the very beginning and today still represents an aspect that is common to all the publications in our range. Of particular relevance is the fact that we have maintained close and continuing contacts with China for considerably longer than 15 years. Our exclusive collaboration with the Peoples Military Medical Press, China’s specialised military publisher, has meant that we have already been able to realise a number of projects with our Chinese counterparts.
But at the core of our activities and the topics on which we mainly focus are military and disaster medicine. Our pre-eminence in this connection was established with the very first issue of WEHRMEDIZIN UND WEHRPHARMAZIE. Indeed, this area is continuing to grow in importance in view of the increasing frequency with which military personnel are deployed abroad and the associated greater need for international collaboration. Our EUROPEAN MILITARY MEDICAL SERVICES journal and our online portal www.military-medicine.com provide forums for the international exchange of information and experience.
The above are complemented by CRISIS PREVENTION, an additional major publication that has as its main topics internal security, civil defence and emergency aid.
All major institutions active in these fields – such as the various ministries of the interior, the police, fire services, the German Federal Criminal Investigation Office, the German civil defence organisation THW and the emergency services, to name but a few – subscribe to CP.
In addition to publishing journals, we also organise congresses, delegation trips and conferences both here in Germany and elsewhere.
We look forward to meeting you!
