Materialien zur Umweltgeschichte Österreichs


The " Materialien zur Umweltgeschichte " are a Digital Open Access publication series of the Centre for Environmental History with print-on-demand option, with which we want to provide all those interested in environmental history with documentations that have the character of working papers. The series concept is formally open so that materials of very different scope can be published, and therefore has no strict format requirements.

Compilations of data relevant for environmental history, transcriptions of interesting archival matter, but also commented excerpts of significant material from extensive source corpora are just some of the possible "materials". In the research-project shaped world, the identified material often remains used only piecemeal. It is therefore all the more important to be able to make largely uncommented raw materials available. Likewise, the series enables us to publish graduate student work together with supplementary source material.

Suggestions for volumes for the series can be made informally to all members of the centre. We welcome contributions that benefit the community of researchers and teachers.
