The Vienna Yearbook of Population Research welcomes the new Editor Tomáš Sobotka. He has been appointed by the leaders of the Vienna Institute of Demography and the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press, the journal’s publishing house. He succeeds long-serving Editor and founder of the journal, Prof. Wolfgang Lutz, who stepped down by the end of 2020. We are pleased that Prof. Lutz agreed to remain member of the Editorial Board.

Tomáš Sobotka is leading the Fertility and Family Research Group and the Vienna Institute of Demography (Austrian Academy of Sciences) / Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital. He has been closely involved with the Yearbook during the last 15 years, serving as managing editor (2005-10), guest editor of special issues (2011, 2017 and 2020), associate editor, and author of several published articles in the journal.

In the next three years Tomáš Sobotka will work closely with the journal’s Managing Editor, Maria Winkler-Dworak, as well as with the newly established international Editorial Board, and the journal’s publishing house in further developing the Yearbook and its website (http://www.viennayearbook.org). This effort will built upon the changes initiated in the recent period and include a speedier publication of accepted papers in an “online first” mode, encouraging a more diverse structure and format of articles, expanding the reach of the calls for papers, creating space for replicable research, and aiming to get the Yearbook listed in selected repositories and citation indexes.


 

The Vienna Yearbook of Population Research (VYPR) is an open-access journal featuring peer-reviewed research and review articles addressing population trends as well as a broad range of theoretical and methodological issues in population research. The journal also publishes Debates featuring invited short contributions and reflections on a selected question or issue.

The journal has been published since 2003 by Austrian Academy of Sciences Press and is hosted by the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. While based in Austria, it aims to give a global coverage of population issues and attract high-quality contributions from authors from different regions and backgrounds. The journal is coordinated by Editor and Managing Editor jointly with issue guest editors, who are chiefly responsible for individual volumes. Their activity is overseen by international Editorial Board.

Articles are published online on a rolling basis. Printed copies are published annually in full colour, usually towards the end of the calendar year.

Since 2010, the volumes have been devoted to selected themes following special calls for thematic issues. The latest issue focusses on Fertility Across Time and Space (2020, Volume 18), while the upcoming issues will cover Demographic Aspects of Human Wellbeing (2021, Volume 19) and Demographic Aspects of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its Consequences (2022, Volume 20, see current Call for Papers).
