Report My purpose with the realized Vienna project was mainly to produce primary data for my PhD dissertation by reaching unedited and unknown sources. I can safely state that I have accomplished a considerable amount of the tasks that I set out to carry out in Vienna and thereby I have completed the third and at the same time the most challenging stage of my doctoral study schedule’s source collection part. Through this project, I was able to obtain the data in the Austrian State Archives —namely, manuscripts and archival documents— for which no remote access is available. Thus, I have got the chance to employ Viennese archives as well for my doctoral dissertation.
