Dr Sully often contributed as a student to magazines and university publications. Her first real break came in 1975 when asked to write on Austria for the esteemed World Today publication of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London. She continued with learned articles for Parliamentary Affairs, West European Politics and other Journals writing mostly on Austrian elections and parties.

As a member of the independent Hansard Society for Parliamentary Democracy Melanie wrote a piece on the Renovation of the Austrian Parliament, July 2023, see here in English.
Together with Dr Christoph Konrath in October 2023 Melanie again contributed to the Hansard Society, see link here, with a Blog on the Case of Austria’s Sebastian Kurz 

In addition to journalism Dr Sully contributed to many books on British politics and comparative government and continues to do so from Austria where she writes for the Austrian Yearbook for Politics, Demokratiebefund, the Styrian Yearbook for Politics, Federations Canada, Europäische Rundschau Wien as well as policy papers for the Austrian Society for European Politics
