The Austrian Studies Newsmagazine (ASN), an English-language publication appearing continuously since summer 1989, is a clearinghouse for information on scholarly activities and opportunities that includes lively, thought-provoking interviews and feature articles offering scholarly perspectives on current events. Starting in 1991, ASN appeared three times annually. In 2004, this changed; a somewhat lengthier ASN is now published twice yearly (spring and fall). It is mailed free of charge to subscribers around the world, and is the only worldwide interdisciplinary English publication of its kind. The ASN's readership, which continues to grow, consists of:

ASN volume 28 number 1, Spring 2016
ASN volume 28 number 1, Spring 2016
  • students, who are introduced to interdisciplinary study of the region by receiving information about scholars, activities, and opportunities
  • scholars, who learn about international conferences, postdoctoral fellowships, archival holdings, and the work of colleagues in other countries and disciplines
  • an educated public of individuals who learn about current developments in scholarship, current events in the region, and the relationship between the two

The ASN was founded in 1989 under the guidance of Kinley Brauer, then-acting director of the center. The founding editors were James O. Brown and Suzanne Sinke (now a professor of history at Florida State University). Daniel Pinkerton has edited the ASN since 1992.
