DPG Publishing Office

In the year 2008 the DPG started its own publication activities. It publishes the membership journal “Phytomedizin” as well as conference proceedings, working group reports, specialist publications and journals in the field of plant protection and plant health in the widest sense. The latter are part of the program "Spectrum Phytomedizin" and distributed via the book trade and additionally as online-publications.
Printed publications will be provided with an ISBN-number, online publications with a URN, i.e. a citable “persistent identifier” issued by the “Deutsche Nationalbibliothek” (German National Library). This URN is equivalent to other digital identifiers like DOI and internationally recognized and accepted as a citable source.
In addition we support you in creating leaflets, brochures or poster that are consistent with the standards of our Corporate Design.
The DPG only publishes publications with at least one DPG-member as author or editor. It is specialized on small circulation numbers, but is of course also able to handle large numbers. The primary goal is to spread reliable information and not to make a profit.
If you as a member are interested in publishing your work with the DPG please contact the administrative office at geschaeftsstelle (at)
