Research notes


From now on, the Journal of Family Research welcomes carefully selected and diligently written brief research notes that present new empirical findings without an extensive theoretical discussion or a literature review. We encourage the publication of brief empirical insights because they serve as a stimulus for further research. Although research notes will be treated like regular submissions, the editorial team will attempt to expedite the double-blind peer review process.

See our "focus & scope" ( as well as our "submission guidelines" ( for more details, and contact the Editorial Office ( in case of questions.
