The Austrian National Library’s literary archive actively pursues scholarly publishing activities resulting in the presentation of numerous individual titles, serial titles (our research series Forschung), the periodicals Profile and Sichtungen, as well as editions of collected works. The magazine Profile appears on a yearly basis, with each issue concentrating on a specific topic. The contributions by renowned experts and the high-quality reproductions of original materials offer fascinating insights into the work of various authors and the phenomenon of writing literature.
The periodical Sichtungen, edited jointly with the Manuscript Department at the Vienna City Library in the Rathaus, is devoted to such themes as archiving, librarianship, and literature studies. Thematically focused volumes are compiled in close cooperation with Austrian and international literary archives and related institutions, aiming at a profound treatment of hitherto ignored or neglected research fields.
In addition, volumes about major research topics and exhibitions are published occasionally in the Forschung and Kataloge series.
