dérive – Zeitschrift für Stadtforschung has been published quarterly in Vienna since Summer 2000 and is an interdisciplinary platform focusing on urban research. dérive juxtaposes the domains of sociology and architecture, architecture and art, art and politics, politics and geography, geography and urban planning, urban planning and philosophy, philosophy and economics and vice versa. The magazine covers a broad spectrum of subjects and each edition focuses on a particular theme, which is explored by experts from a number of perspectives. Besides the main topic dérive also contains presentations of urban projects, town portraits, interviews, a history of urbanity, a review section and artists' inserts by different artists.

dérive enjoys an excellent reputation amongst its readers as an independent, interdisciplinary and international medium at the interface between academic journal and popular magazine. Over 400 authors have contributed to approximately 1000 articles and reviews in the first 10 years since its launch, and nearly 40 artists have designed unique artists' inserts for dérive. In the course of 10 years, dérive has succeeded in establishing itself as an important voice on urban research in the German-speaking world. dérive is published in german, nevertheless some articles are printed in english.

The 10th anniversary issue Understanding Stadtforschung offers 212 pages cutting edge urban research by Roger Keil, Klaus Ronneberger, Saskia Sassen, Loic Wacquant, Eyal Weizman and Orhan Esen amongst many others, including 36 pages of artists' inserts by Ulrike Mohr, Alice Creischer, Ina Wudtke, Rob Hornstra, Daniel Knorr, Barbara Steveni, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Lara Almarceguí and Stephen Willats.
