Margraf Publishers GmbH

Margraf Publishers was founded in the 80ties of the last century by Josef Margraf, a well-known German biologist. It was converted into a «Limited Liability Company» in 2003, incorporating Backhuys Publishers LLC (Netherlands) since then. Beside producing and distributing scientific books, major fields of activities are the development of concepts and the implementation of trainings, mainly in the e-Learning format or as ToT (Training-of-Trainers) courses and the creation of web-based Content Management Systems (CMS).

Since 2003, «Distance-Learning» courses have been developed and implemented for the water and wastewater sector as well as in the field of vocational training, mainly on behalf of the German development cooperation. Since this time, courses evolved from CBTs (Computer-based Trainings, delivered on CD) and later WBTs (Web-based Trainings) into todays e-Learnings. Modern trainings use interactive tools in a virtual learning environment (LMS – Learning Management System) to enable the learning process and collaboration among participants and trainers.


Beside the publication of content and educational aspects of an interactive Content Management System, one of our most important  services is to provide collaboration platforms. Depending on the customers (or projects or networks) needs and demands, a «tailor-made» meeting room (password protected) on the Inter- or on a local Intranet is established, combining both a customized design to suit the customers CI and a selection of tools (such as Question/Answer Service, Virtual video/audio meeting room, Forum, Webinar etc.) which are needed to fulfil a certain task.


Functional design and an attractive user interface are pre-requisites for every online-interaction and every website. Margraf Publishers GmbH has long experience in almost all aspects of traditional web-design as well as of interactive Web 2.0 elements. This guarantees a maximum benefit for our clients. Websites are usually built upon a data-based Content-Management System like Typo3, thus making actualization of the contents for the customers much easier. Depending on the demand of our clients, additional functions individually complete the service offered to the visitor of the website. The following screenshots want to offer a choice of some of the websites and services created in the last months – just contact us for further information.
