"Elementarpädagogische Forschungsbeiträge" (ElFo) is a professional Open Access journal that publishes current elementary-educational research contributions. Both contributions from current and completed research projects are published.

The journal offers young researchers in the German-speaking area a platform for their first scientific publications. It establishes appropriate scientific criteria for this target group and accompanies them through a transparent quality control process (see e.g. submission of contributions).

Research contributions in "Elementarpädagogische Forschungsbeiträge" (ElFo) are subject to peer review.

The editors of ElFo invite all interested parties to submit contributions. We kindly ask you to observe the author guidelines; for submissions as well as feedback and information of all kinds please contact
