The company was first founded by Seyyed M. Miri and Seyed-M Alavian as an editorial group in a Medical Institute in 2007 to publish its medical journal. After three years of experience, the number of journals increased to 5 journals and the company launched its first form of business as a VOF (joint collaboration) professional STM company in Heerlen, the Netherlands which was called "Kowsarmedical Publishing". Respecting the publishing services (from submission to publishing), especially an in-house "Journal Management System," the number of our journals increased to more than 60 STM journals between 2010 and 2019. Since 2022, "Briefland" is the new brand name that acts as a "Science, Technical, Medical Publisher" that publishes more than 50 journals with the services provided by 97 expert employees in three different branches.
