Informationen Deutsch als Fremdsprache (Info DaF) is one of the leading journals for teachers and scholars of German as a Foreign Language and is edited by the Fachverband Deutsch als Fremd- und Zweitsprache (FaDaF) and the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD). The journal was founded in 1973 at a time when the discipline was still in its early days. Since then, DaF has become an institutionally-established field in its own right. Today, in times of migration and globalization, German language instruction is more important than ever, making Info DaF an indispensible source of information for teachers of German throughout the world.
The journal publishes contributions covering current and internationally-relevant topics in the field that are of interest to scholars on all continents. It also publishes guest-edited special issues, for which the occasional Calls for Papers is held. In addition, each annual volume features a special review issue in which new publications are presented and discussed.
Please see the calls for papers, the calls for contributions to special issues, and the call for reviews for the annual review issue 2/3.
