Since 1850 the journals are the most important medium for scientific publications of the survey.

The explanatory notes of geological maps contain some deeper and important information, as well as a lot of literature.

These loosely published publications contain superregional themes, most of them are monographs.

These monographs are published due to some special events or topics addressing on one hand the scientific community and on the other hand a broader audience.

In these booklets topics for a broader audience are published.
