Austria’s independent daily newspaper
Der Standard was founded in 1988 by Oscar Bronner with its editorial headquarters in Vienna. It is published in the Berliner format (315 × 470 mm). The newspaper has a nationwide focus with separate editorial offices in the federal states of Styria, Upper Austria, and Carinthia. According to an Austrian media analysis for 2010, Der Standard has a readership in Austria of 374,000, corresponding to a coverage of 5.3 percent.
In 1995, derStandard.at was set up as the first online version of a German-language newspaper. Since March 2000, it has offered dieStandard.at as an online medium focusing on women and feminism. Early in 2010, daStandard.at was added to the newspaper’s online presence as a portal for migrants, receiving the 2011 Civis prize, Europe’s media award for integration.
Der Standard describes itself as liberal and independent. As a member of the Project Syndicate, the newspaper regularly publishes commentary pieces by internationally known figures that are distributed worldwide. Every Monday, the paper includes an insert in English with excerpts from The New York Times.
