Selected publications



Below is a list of selected publications from peer-reviewed journals.

For a full list of research interests and publications, take a look at our individual departmental pages, found here.

We also regularly write short pieces summarizing our research for teachers working within the German speaking world, with the aim of bridging the science to practice gap. Those publications can be found in the Potsdam Center for Empirical Research on Inclusive Education (ZEIF) Science to Classroom portal.
