Almanach der Psychoanalyse


The first Almanach der Psychoanalyse was published in 1926 by Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag in Vienna. The job of publishing the Almanach, a highly effective publicity vehicle, was the first editorial decision made by Adolf Josef Storfer after the departure of Otto Rank as director of the press. Storfer's goal was to supply a kind of budget anthology of psychoanalysis that would provide an overview of the psychoanalytic literature.

The Almanach was published once a year from 1926 until 1938, when the Germans entered Austria. There were thirteen volumes in all, comprising between two and three hundred pages each; nine thousand copies of each octavo volume were printed. Each number contained about twenty short articles written by psychoanalysts, scientists, and writers (including Thomas Mann, Stefan Zweig, and Hermann Hesse), articles that had previously appeared in the psychoanalytic literature, pages from books published by Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag, and, in rare cases, unpublished writing. Freud helped support the Almanach by publishing "Humor" and "Fetishism," two unpublished texts of his, in 1928. Each volume also contained portraits of the various psychoanalysts and critiques of works on psychoanalysis excerpted from newspapers and the trade press, as well as a list of new publications by Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
