New Open Science Policy


The Journal of Family Research has long been known to share the idea(l)s of open science and agrees with the Open Science Framework that "openness is a core value of scientific practice".

Therefore, and with immediate effect, JFR obliges all authors to give a data availability statement and to share their replication code together with their published article.

We revised our open science policy accordingly, please see all details here:

This new policy does apply to all new submissions as of March 28, 2022.

Please contact the Editorial Office in case of questions.
