ZIF’s scope


The Zeitschrift für Interkulturellen Fremdsprachenunterricht – MehrSprachen Lehren und Lernen (ZIF) is a scientific publication employing a double-blind review process. ZIF’s goal is to promote and intensify scholarly debate on all areas of teaching and learning of foreign, second and heritage languages by presenting a wide range of high-quality contributions.

Founded in 1996, ZIF is ad-free, independent of publishers and available free of charge to anyone interested in learning more about these topics. All of the editing and technical work is performed by a small team of volunteers. All of the expenses for technical implementation of the journal are covered by the Linguistics – Multilingualism research group of TU Darmstadt and the University and State Library Darmstadt.
