was founded in the late 40s of the last century. In 1965 the
of Dustri-Verlag, Karl Müller, a printer from Remscheid, Germany,
sold Dustri-Verlag to Dr. Karl Feistle,
an ambitious young publisher.In
1999 Dustri-Verlag was taken over by Frank and Joerg Feistle, who are willing to continue and expand the
success, started by their father. In 2003 the
American office of Dustri-Verlag was founded in Rockledge, FL, in
order to improve contacts to its
authors and readers.
For the past 40 years Dustri-Verlag has been specializing in medical literature. The publisher's oldest periodical is the Medical Literature Adviser (MLA), offering information on the latest medical books to booksellers. Published monthly, it also informs doctors and medical students about the latest publications in their fields. Medical books were also published, such as Facies dolorosa by Hans Kilian, a famous German surgeon. In 1971 Dustri-Verlag started publishing the first journal in its program: Nieren- und Hochdruckkrankheiten (Renal Diseases and Hypertensive, founding-editor R. Kluthe). In 1973 the first English language journal followed: Clinical Nephrology (founding-editor R. Kluthe), soon well known as the "green journal", was one of the first in its field. Since 1975 five new journals were added to the program: Allergologie (Allergy), Atemwegs- und Lungenkrankenheiten,(Airway and Lung Diseases), Intensiv- und Notfallbehandlung (Critical Care), Verdauungskrankeiten (Gastroenterology) and Prävention und Rehabilitation (Prevention and Rehabilitation). In addition to Clinical Nephrology Dustri-Verlag had published the following international journals in the English language for many years: Clinical Neuropathology, International Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and Trace Elements and Electrolytes.
A book program was launched in the 70's. The first yellow pocket books were published. Then hardcover books and ringbinder books, the so-called Manuale were added. In 1999 the English book program was started with Clinical Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation, edited by H.H. Malluche et al.
Since 1990 Dustri-Verlag has been typesetting in its own studio. This has speeded up production.
Dustri-Verlag especially aims today to support young doctors in publishing their results in an journal-article or as a book.
Dustri-Verlag and the whole staff offers a personal dedication for its book and journal program in order to satisfy its authors and readers.
