The exchange of publications programme links the society’s publishing activities and scientific library since the foundation of the Zoologisch-Botanische Gesellschaft in Österreich (Austrian Zoological-Botanical Society) in 1851. While there were 53 exchange partners in 1853, today there are 433 all over the world, which collect the society’s publications and send over 1000 items per year for the society´s library. The development of the exchange programme over the last 150 years is described, completed with a list of the present-day exchange partners and visualised on two maps, in HUDLER & PUNZ (2003): Verh.Zool.-Bot.Ges.Oesterreich 140:117-133.
The list of our exchange partners from 2003 who get Verhandlungen and Abhandlungen is available here:
In 2018 we had 300 exchangepartners as can be seen here:
The exchange partners, who get the Koleopterologische Rundschau, are documented in HUDLER & PUNZ (2004): Verh.Zool.-Bot.Ges.Oesterreich 141:119-125.
We are always glad to find new exchange partners.
