The IGS Report is an annually published comprehensive overview on the activities within the IGS for the past year. For the first time, the 2019 report has registered with a DOI and ISBN number (ISSN: 2297-8526ISBN: 978-3-03917-009-8; University of Bern, Bern Open Publishing. DOI: 10.7892/boris.14400). In this way the reports are better embedded in the system of scientific literature. We have also registered all previous reports as well.


The Central Bureau, the Governing Board and editors (Arturo Villiger and Rolf Dach – AIUB) want to thank everyone for their hard work and contributions.
