The subject of the presentation is the Austrian press and book production. On the one hand, the focus is on the number, circulation and reach of Austrian daily newspapers, as well as on federal press subsidies. Data sources are statistical and administrative data from various bodies (Association of Austrian Newspapers, Austrian Circulation Control, Media-Analysis Working Group, Communications Authority Austria), most of which are published by these organizations themselves.

On the other hand, the presentation deals with newly published book titles and university theses (dissertations), which are recorded and analyzed by the Austrian National Library as part of the Austrian Bibliography.
