Berlin Exchange Medicine

The first German Student Healthcare Journal. Member of Berlin Exchange.

Engaging Students in Research

Our Partners

Our concept does not only fascinate us, but also our partners!  The following institutions, journals and initiatives are currently supporting us.


Anwesenheitsnotiz, a berlin-based student journal existing since  2010, contains student papers as well as reviews and editorial content on (current) topics from the arts, culture, and science. The journal is published once or twice a year with a circulation of 600 copies at many universities in German-speaking countries.
Since 2021, anwesenheitsnotiz has been a founding member of Berlin Exchange.



The grassroots think tank Polis180 translates scientific findings for policy makers. Polis180 brings the ideas, analyses and solutions of our generation into the political discourse through innovative, participatory and inclusive approaches. In thematic programs and with new and creative formats, including their own journal PolisReflects, they develop real alternatives for constructive foreign and European policy. PolisReflects has been a founding member of Berlin Exchange since 2021.

Institutionalization | Berlin Exchange

Complex challenges need trans- and interdisciplinary approaches!

  • Berlin Exchange, a cooperation of student journals, is a completely new platform for student journals in Germany to collaborate in terms of content, organization and funding.

    Cooperation of student journals

  • Currently, Berlin Exchange is constituted by the founding members PolisReflects, anwesenheitsnotiz and our journal, Berlin Exchange Medicine - together, we are striving for visibility and encouragement of student research and the realization of inter- and transdisciplinary approaches.

    One shared goal

  • In accordance with the networking character of Berlin Exchange, we share resources and know-how; when things get difficult, we look for a solution together!
    Our long-term goal is to develop one joint issue on a cross-sectional theme per year.

    Networked cooperation

More about our partner journals at Berlin Exchange can be found on the websites of PolisReflects and anwesenheitsnotiz.
