Research Anchor Publishing


Research Anchor Publishing (RAP) represents a consulting company for medical sciences. RAP aims to teach international clinical research methodologies in a practice-oriented way to facilitate the start of a research career for future scientists.

We offer synchronic as well as a-synchronic online-trainings in various fields of clinical research with several levels of difficulty. The courses are designed to systematically build up on each other, but can also be used independently. Hence, our course catalogue aims to reflect the developmental path of a growing research scientist by providing helpful tips, ranging from how to read a paper, over how to generate a meta-analysis, to how to upload a study in specific scientific journals.

Furthermore, RAP offers individual consultation lessons for papers, which are to be published, in order to increase the possibility to be accepted by the Peer-Reviewed Journal of interest.

Our target group encompasses heterogenous occupational classes, such as students, physicians or scientists to enable a career entry in the field of clinical research on various career levels. Since most research methodologies require English medical terminology, the courses are offered in German and English language. 

RAP is characterized in particular by its practice-oriented teaching methodology that comprehensively guides existing and future research scientists from study reading to publishing. The company's motto is: "statistical significance follows clinical relevance".
