Focus on European Economic Integration
The Focus on European Economic Integration (FEEI) is the OeNB’s flagship publication on Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe (CESEE). It provides reports and statistics on economic developments and scientific studies. Reflecting the OeNB’s strategic focus on CESEE, the quarterly journal also offers a platform for sharing OeNB Euro Survey findings, the semiannual outlook for selected CESEE countries as well as summaries of CESEE-related OeNB events.
In addition to its regional focus, the FEEI is unique in combining academic research with economic and financial policy topics. Contributions range from empirical studies on macrofinancial issues and monetary integration to country reports and cross-sectional studies.
Articles published in the FEEI are above all contributions from OeNB staff, often authored in cooperation with researchers from universities and economic policy institutions in Austria or abroad. External authors are generally not entitled to submit articles for publication in the FEEI. They may, however, be invited by the editors to submit articles, such as studies they had presented at OeNB conferences or workshops.
To ensure the high quality of the FEEI, contributions must undergo multiple rounds of comments. Each contribution is first checked by OeNB experts and then subjected to a double-blind peer review carried out by external reviewers.
For more details on the peer review process as well as best practice and ethics guidelines established for all parties involved in producing the FEEI, follow the link to the Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement below.

OeNB Euro Survey
Another cornerstone of the OeNB’s CESEE focus is the OeNB Euro Survey, which was launched in 2007. Updated annually, it surveys individuals on the use of the euro in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe. Given the wealth of data it has generated over time, the OeNB Euro Survey has proven a valuable source of data for Researchers.
CESEE banking sector database
The OeNB also publishes a CESEE banking sector database. The information provided includes indicators for banking density, bank concentration and the role of foreign banks at the NUTS-3 level for ten CESEE countries.
