Our publications are produced by a dedicated team of digital publishers working together with Medica Press, based in Zurich - Switzerland.

Organized as a collective of medical authors and editors the company has acquired a huge database of medical information in five language territories: English, French, German, American and Dutch.

From these databases series of medical books and encyclopedias are being published (for example, Winkler Prins Medical Encyclopedia in 12 languages). Series of books have been published in various European (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, England, Norway, Spain, Germany, France, Italy) and other countries (USA, Israel, Egypt).

The databases are being regarded as the largest collection of text and illustrations aimed at the general public.

Since 1996 a special storage-retrieval system has been developed in cooperation with the computer department of the Technical University at Zürich, for adaptation of the material for internet and other electronic data-handling systems.
