"From Information to Knowledge" describes the upcoming research landscape "Sustainability" by investigating the case of the research programme "Austrian Landscape Research" (ALR). ALR works out the scientific basis for a sustainable development of the Austrian landscape and regions and manages fields of research from biodiversity and quality of life, to genesis and transformation of (cultural) landscapes and rural development.


"From Information to Knowledge" deals with the allocation and use of knowledge and develops an integrative picture of the knowledge of this new scientific discipline of sustainability. By combining quantitative statistical data with qualitative methods from social science, the project results allow to identify and combine main topics, terms and words that are at the core of the Austrian Landscape Research Programme.


The study combines the method BibTechMon (Bibliometric quantitative methods such as Co-Word Analysis, Cluster Analysis) with a qualitative social approach (Objective Hermeneutics, Artefact Analysis).


A dynamic Data Bank (Informationssystem KLF), containing all scientific reports of the first phase of the ARL Programme. The Data Bank allows the user to locate terms and words in their original context (389 803 words, thesaurus: 20 489 words) and to detect visual clusters of Co-Word Analysis that highlight interrelations between terms and words used by the different ARL scientists.


A Theoretical Model that describes and reflects the main subjects of the ALR Scientific Community by means of the Seven Theses on Sustainability.
