About Journal for Research in Mathematics Education

JRME Editor Nominations 



The Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME), an official journal of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, is devoted to the interests of teachers of mathematics and mathematics education at all levels-preschool through adult. JRME is a forum for disciplined inquiry into the teaching and learning of mathematics. The editors encourage the submission of a variety of manuscripts: reports of research, including experiments, case studies, surveys, philosophical studies, and historical studies; articles about research, including literature reviews and theoretical analyses; brief reports of research; critiques of articles and books; and brief commentaries on issues pertaining to research.

The Journal for Research in Mathematics Education is published five times a year—January, March, May, July, and November—at 1906 Association Dr., Reston, VA 20191-1502. An index for each volume appears in the November issue.

The publications of the Council present a variety of viewpoints. The views expressed or implied in this publication, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official positions of the Council.
