It's better to go with the pagination because the right side has 2 panels. The user has a clear idea on what action is being performed. In case of infinite scrolling, some times the second panel action might trigger scrolling. As @ken suggested, I recommend Lean UX, it's the best way to approach this kind of issue.

You could possibly refrain from using the according all together like shown in the image. A fixed sidebar with provision to scroll the main items (the arrows at the top and bottom). On clicking the items, you could show a content area beside it showing all the contents that you had planned to display inside your accordion. The users should be able to ...

I agree with Michael in terms of "content is king" whereas the determining factor for the accordions should depend on how necessary certain information is. Does the user need that specific information for reference? Perhaps do not include that part in an accordion. And you can still use accordions to condense the rest of the page. And then regarding ...

It is not something that I have seen. One thing to keep in mind is that if you implement an uncommon feature on your site then you're asking users to learn a new mechanic and are increasing their cognitive load (perhaps unnecessarily). If it's only 2 categories, why not just have them both expanded from the start? If there were numerous categories I could ...

The reasons are that: They are more visually distinct than the up and down arrows plus and minus already have semantic associations with more and less The visual association between the title and the content should be managed by the visual ...

Conclusion Use whichever icon's you want, but put them on the ...

I would choose option 3. Use arrows, but have the arrow pointing right when closed, and down when open. download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups The reason for this is that the arrow now always points to the content it relates to. If you have an arrow pointing up then it could be misinterpreted as pointing to the ...

If all the information in the steps (Person; Relation; Reference; Files) is mandatory, and you are worried that there is a high risk of failure to save (timeout / system failure), then it would make more sense to make this a multi-step process, and replace 'Save' with 'Next'. Of course, you can also auto-save on opening of the next accordion, and achieve ...

I would say Accordion. Multipage may give issues when going back a step and losing form data, plus it's usually not possible for customers to 'look ahead' to what they have to fill in. It can feel too opaque, like you're expected to sign a contract but they're not letting you read it in its entirety. But a single page can seem daunting, especially if you ...
