Launch of the new online submission system


The Journal of Family Research is proud to launch its new online submission platform.

As of 2020, the Journal of Family Research is going to succeed “Zeitschrift für Familienforschung | Journal of Family Research” (see brief history of the Journal). Building on more than 30 years of experience, we then offer high quality research in the field on family and population studies “open access”.

All manuscripts that have been published in the journal from 1989 to 2019, and will be published in the future, will be available online and free of charge. We no longer offer printed copies of the journal.

Currently, we are working on our local Archive on this platform. Until we are finished, all manuscripts will be available from the “Social Science Open Access Repository”.

Should you wish to buy printed copies of the previous journal issues (issue 3/2019 or earlier), please contact “Barbara Budrich Publishers”.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our previous publishing house, “Barbara Budrich Publishers,” our previous publisher, Edmund Budrich, as well as our previous layout specialist, Beate Glaubitz, for their exceptional commitment to the Journal in the past. Without them, the Journal would not be where it is now.

From now on, we welcome your submissions to JFR through our new submission system (submit your paper here).

Since October 2019, the Journal of Family Research is part of the Twitter community. Feel free to follow our updates on Twitter:
