Searching & Finding

Information Gateways

The BBF cooperates regarding the provision of portals in the area of educational research and history which comprise diverse information services, e.g. reviews, reference databases, directories of institutions and current information and announcements.

German Education Portal (Fachportal Pädagogik)

The German Education Portal (Fachportal Pädagogik) targets educational researchers, educational scientists and subject didactics. It offers access to

  • Scientific literature with an integrated search space and links to digitized full texts (including Open Access publications),
  • Empirical educational research data and research instruments;
  • Relevant research information for communities in the discipline.

The three areas above are interlinked, they can be searched across the portal and they are enriched with further relevant information (e.g. calendar of events).

The German Education Portal is run by the Information Center for Education of DIPF (IZB) with many partners, including the BBF.
