Peer review info

As academic publisher, the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press attaches particular importance to the highest quality of the works it publishes.

All manuscripts we receive are subjected to an international and anonymous academic review process (peer review). This review checks compliance with academic standards, relevance and topicality of the subject matter and guarantees that the book projects meet a high standard both in terms of content and formally.

The reviews are carried out by academics working abroad specialising in the field. The reviewers must not be biased in any way with respect to the authors, or be under any professional, financial or personal obligations to them.

Within the set deadline, the selected reviewers prepare informative, non-anonymised reviews that are made available to the Press. At least two reviews are obtained for each work. These reviews form the basis for the decision by the Section for the Humanities and Social Sciences or the Section for Mathematics and the Natural Sciences, as the case may be, to accept, modify or reject the manuscript.

If a review recommends that the work be revised, the suggestions and criticisms provided are communicated to the authors by the Press in anonymised form. Following the revision of the work, the further stages up to the printing of the book are discussed with the author and if appropriate a contract is concluded.

Abstract

Cyberscience will be different from traditional science. For two decades already, the scholarly community has witnessed a considerable increase in the use of information and communication technologies (ICT). As opposed to "traditional" science that does without networked computers, the notion of "cyberscience" captures the use of these ICT-based applications and services for scientific purposes. The basic assumption of this study is that ICT use impacts on the basic parameters of how academia is organised, of how it functions, and of what it produces. This book describes and analyses the use of ICT in the academic world; it explains the status quo based on an analytical model; it draws a realistic and differentiated picture of probable future developments; it assesses the impact of ICT on various aspects of academic activity and on the substance of research; and it discusses the implications for research policy and the steering mechanisms within scholarly organisations. The overall conclusion is that we are in midstream of a forceful development. Cyberscience is already taking place, but will only develop its full shape and potential later. The new media have only just begun to play a central role in a large array of scholarly activities, and in regard to the institutional setting. Not only academic communication in the narrow sense, but also the distribution of knowledge and, most importantly, even knowledge production are affected. Hence, the impact of ICT can hardly be underrated.

Abstract

Die strategische Umweltprüfung ist ein umweltpolitisches Instrument von höchster Aktualität. Die Prüfung der Umweltauswirkungen auf vorgelagerten Planungsebenen ist ein wesentlich effizienteres Instrument der umweltpolitischen Vorsorge als ein rein projektbezogenes Vorgehen. Die SUP verbindet effizienteren Umweltschutz mit der Möglichkeit, Zulassungsverfahren auf Projektebene deutlich zu entlasten. Das vorliegende Handbuch wurde so aufgebaut, daß es auch für eilige Leser gut nutzbar ist. Das Werk wendet sich an Planungsexperten sowohl bei Behörden als auch in Planungsbüros. Dabei sind unterschiedlichste Fachbereiche, von der Raumordnung über die Verkehrsplanung, Wasserwirtschaft, Energiewirtschaft, Abfallwirtschaft, Tourismusplanung und andere umweltrelevante Planungsvorhaben angesprochen. Das Handbuch ist ab seiner 2. Auflage als Loseblatt-Sammlung konzipiert, um der dynamischen Entwicklung im SUP-Bereich Folge zu leisten und in regelmäßigen Zeitabständen Aktualisierungslieferungen vornehmen zu können.
