One of the key tasks of the OeAI is the publication of its scientific results thus promoting the visibility of its research both nationally and internationally. For this purpose the institute supported in-house publishing but this was closed down following the incorporation of the OeAI into the Austrian Academy of Sciences. With the continued existence of the institute within a new research landscape the production of books was also reorganized; the extensive international exchange of publications was retained as it ensures the inventory and growth of the department library.
