About

The Austrian Academy of Sciences Press was founded in January 1973 in order to publish the latest research findings of a high quality level and to distribute them nationally and internationally, thus providing Austrian science with a suitable publication platform. At present, more than 700 academics from over 30 countries are now writing for other academics and for the ever-increasing group of persons interested in scholarly discussion. The quality of these publications is guaranteed by an expert Publications Advisory Board. The research activity of the Austrian Academy of Sciences allows the Press to publish works in a wide range of humanities and natural sciences as well as in the social sciences and jurisprudence.

Peer review info

As academic publisher, the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press attaches particular importance to the highest quality of the works it publishes.

All manuscripts we receive are subjected to an international and anonymous academic review process (peer review). This review checks compliance with academic standards, relevance and topicality of the subject matter and guarantees that the book projects meet a high standard both in terms of content and formally..

The reviews are carried out by academics working abroad specialising in the field. The reviewers must not be biased in any way with respect to the authors, or be under any professional, financial or personal obligations to them.

Within the set deadline, the selected reviewers prepare informative, non-anonymised reviews that are made available to the Press. At least two reviews are obtained for each work. These reviews form the basis for the decision by the Section for the Humanities and Social Sciences or the Section for Mathematics and the Natural Sciences, as the case may be, to accept, modify or reject the manuscript.

If a review recommends that the work be revised, the suggestions and criticisms provided are communicated to the authors by the Press in anonymised form. Following the revision of the work, the further stages up to the printing of the book are discussed with the author and if appropriate a contract is concluded.

Abstract

During 1999 and 2001 re-excavations in Križna jama were carried out, which brought crucial results concerning the taxonomical and stratigraphical position of the fossil taphocoenosis, especially of cave bears, and on their ethology. Moreover new data on the hydrological structure of the cave as well as on its sedimentology were published. A substantial part of this volume is dedicated to the extant fauna of this cave, which is extraordinary rich in species.

Abstract

During the Cold War, the systemic rivalry between East and West was also carried out in the field of scholarship. This volume examines the Academies of Sciences in Central Europe on either side of the Iron Curtain in the early stages of the Cold War (and in some cases beyond). These include academies in the Socialist states (the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Romanian People’s Republic Academy, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Polish Academy of Sciences, the Czechoslovakian Academy of Sciences, and the Slovakian Academy of Sciences), academies in divided Germany (the German Academy of Sciences at Berlin [Academy of Sciences of the GDR], the Saxon Academy of Sciences, the Academy of Agricultural Sciences of the GDR, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and finally the Leopoldina in Halle/Saale as the all-German Academy of Sciences), and the Austrian Academy of Sciences.Der vorliegende Band ermöglicht erstmals einen vergleichenden Blick auf Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg.Im Kalten Krieg wurde die Systemkonkurrenz zwischen Ost und West auch im Feld der Wissenschaften ausgetragen. Der Band thematisiert Akademien der Wissenschaften in Zentraleuropa diesseits und jenseits des Eisernen Vorhangs in der Zeit des frühen Kalten Krieges (und fallweise darüber hinaus). Vertreten sind Akademien in den sozialistischen Staaten (die Slowenische Akademie der Wissenschaften und Künste, die Akademie der Volksrepublik Rumänien, die Ungarische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Polnische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Tschechoslowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften und die Slowakische Akademie der Wissenschaften), Akademien der Wissenschaften im geteilten Deutschland (die Deutsche Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin [Akademie der Wissenschaften der DDR], die Sächsische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Akademie der Landwirtschaftswissenschaften der DDR, die Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften, die Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften und schließlich die Leopoldina in Halle/Saale als gesamtdeutsche Akademie der Naturforscher) sowie die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften.Die übergreifende Fragestellung richtet sich zum einen auf Kontinuitäten und Zäsuren innerhalb der Akademien, zum anderen auf Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen ‚westlichem‘ und sozialistischem Akademiemodell, aber auch innerhalb des jeweiligen politischen Systems. Ausgangspunkt des Vergleichs ist das Maß an Eigenständigkeit und Unabhängigkeit, dass den Wissenschaftsakademien von Staat und Politik jeweils zugestanden wird.In einem einleitenden Kapitel werden die grundsätzlichen Unterschiede zwischen Akademien ,westlichen‘ und sozialistischen Typs aufgezeigt und analysiert. Eine markante Differenz zeigt sich bereits in zwei zentralen Aspekten: Während die ‚westlichen‘ Akademien – trotz Involvierung in den Nationalsozialismus – nach 1945 weitgehend bruchlos weitergeführt wurden, erfolgte in den sozialistischen Staaten eine Neugründung der Wissenschaftsakademien. Die Akademien sozialistischen Typs wurden bald zu groß angelegten Forschungsträgern ausgebaut, während die ,westlichen‘ Akademien reine Gelehrtengesellschaften blieben. Eine Zwischenposition zwischen diesen beiden Modellen nimmt die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften (ÖAW) ein.Die Einleitung der Herausgeber und der Beitrag von Mitchell Ash bilden einen fundierten Rahmen für die insgesamt 15 Beiträge namhafter Wissenschaftshistorikerinnen. Eine Schlussbetrachtung von Herbert Matis und Arnold Suppan verortet die Einzelbeiträge vor dem Hintergrund der politischen Transformationen in Zentraleuropa im Kalten Krieg. Der Band präsentiert neue Ergebnisse des von der ÖAW initiierten Forschungsnetzwerks zur Geschichte der Akademien der Wissenschaften in Europa im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert. In diesem Band werden vielfach erstmals Forschungsergebnisse zu ostmitteleuropäischen Akademien im K

Abstract

Once more we are made aware of the fact that during the first half of the 19th century Bohemian musicians performed successfully outside their home country, in Europe as well as in the New World and in the Russian Empire, including careers in Vienna and we also learn that the readers of Viennese journals in the first place of the “Theaterzeitung” got firsthand information about the repertoire of the theatres in Prague and of theatres elsewhere. Reports and reviews about the life in the applied arts in the Bohemian lands being a rather lesser known chapter of art history allow us an insight in this field. The volume in question offers a reach source of information concerning the history of music, applied and performing arts in the Bohemian lands under Habsburg rule in the first half of the 19th century from the perspective of Viennese media.

Abstract

This volume is the result of a conference, which was held from June 14–15, 2012 at the Event Centre Schüttkasten in Klement-Oberleis, Lower Austria. The thematic focus of the contributions was the nature of contacts and relations between the settlement areas of the La Tène culture, which are associated with the Celtic tribes of the Boii and Taurisci on the basis of numismatic and written sources. The paradigm shifts in Iron Age archaeology and the veritable explosion of new archaeological materials and find contexts (coins, fibulae, Knotenringe, architecture and settlement features) have found their expression in this volume.

Abstract

In these conference proceedings particular attention is paid to the performance of burials and burial rites between 1300 and 750 BC. A change in burial customs took place in large parts of central Europe during the 13th century BC. The dead were no longer buried in inhumation graves – as was customary until then – but were burned and laid to rest in urns. This transformation of burial customs is probably connected to far reaching changes in society and religious beliefs.

Abstract

An animal bone assemblage discovered in an area of Late Bronze Age aboveground activities at the Hallstatt salt mining site was analysed. Together with sunken logwall structurs the results support the idea of a large-scale production of salt-meat, ham and bacon.
