By decision of November 10, 2010, the Austrian Academy of Sciences established the “BRGÖ - Beiträge zur Rechtsgeschichte Österreichs” (Contributions to Austrian Legal History) as a journal of the Academy’s Commission for Austrian Legal History. The BRGÖ has appeared twice a year since 2011, both in print and online; usually one volume is devoted to a particular topic, while the second volume contains miscellaneous contributions.
