1947 A new start in Stuttgart after World War II

Thieme Publishing Group – More than 120 years of scientific publishing Georg Thieme was just 26 years old when, in 1886, he founded what would become one of the world’s premier medical and scientific publishers. Today the Thieme Publishing Group is still privately-held and family-owned with more than 900 employees and offices in seven cities, including New York, Beijing, Delhi, Stuttgart and three other locations in Germany.

In addition to advancing medical education, Thieme produces a wide range of outstanding publications covering chemistry and biology.

A leading STM publisher, Thieme produces superior products in every conceivable format, from professional journals, textbooks, atlases, monographs and reference books to online and offline electronic media and direct information forums such as congresses and seminars.

“La Medicina GermanoHispanoAmerican” – a Spanish medical magazine for Latin America – is published

Thieme works to keep pace with the tremendous strides made by modern science.

Inspired by the past and committed to an independent future, the Thieme Publishing Group continues to grow through the further development of its print and electronic offerings.
