About the Journal: Der Donauraum
Der Donauraum (The Danube Region) is the scientific journal of the IDM.
The journal has a regional and interdisciplinary focus and collects contributions on the countries of the Danube Region in both German and English. Early-career academics and researchers from the region are particularly encouraged to gain publishing experience through contributing to “Der Donauraum”. Since 1993, it has been available at Böhlau Verlag in Vienna.
Although one of the few journals with this specific regional and interdisciplinary focus, “Der Donauraum” is not yet indexed in any journal database. Editors and guest editors of the respective issue are committed to academic standards and responsible for the high quality of collected articles. Every issue is professionally proofread by a native speaker.

About the Magazine: Info Europa
“Info Europa: Information on the Danube Region and Central Europe” is the thematic issue of the IDM. The publication addresses German-speaking readers and informs them about developments in the region in three issues per year.
The first issue of the year, entitled “Cultural Guide to Central Europe,” focuses on developments in the fields of art and culture. The two other issues are devoted to current socio-political topics – always from a deliberately cross-border perspective.
Since the creation of the publication in July 2000, then still under the title “Focus Europe”, the series has developed into a unique chronicle of European stories without losing sight of the country-specific features – a publication which is based in Vienna, but finds its home in all of Europe.

IDM Policy Paper Series
The IDM Policy Paper Series (IDM PPS) deals with current political issues in the Danube Region, Central and South-Eastern Europe at regular intervals. Various/alternating renowned authors develop recommendations for action (Policy Solutions – PS), which are aimed at decision-makers, experts, journalists and the interested public.
The aim is to describe a problem and show concrete solutions with a maximum of 12,000 characters. Finally, further information on the specialisation can be provided. The editorial team selects the topics and identifies the authors. The content is edited, but only reflects the opinion of the authors. The IDM PPS is barrier-free.
Die „Studien“ des Instituts für den Donauraum und Mitteleuropa (IDM) dokumentieren Projekte und Untersuchungen zu aktuellen Forschungsfragen der CEE/SEE-Region, die in Kooperation mit dem IDM durchgeführt wurden.
Die Bände erscheinen als Buchreihe des IDM im Böhlau Verlag.
