Review Instructions for Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK–12
Thank you for joining NCTM on this journey into exciting new territory. As we develop Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK–12 (MTLT) you will begin to notice that submissions under consideration for publication may look different than manuscripts you reviewed for TCM, MTMS or MT.
As word spreads to authors about what the MTLT Editorial Board seeks to publish, you will increasingly find manuscripts that are digitally enhanced with components such as a video clips, audio files, Livescribe™ files, SMART Board™ files, or other forms of multimedia. Evaluation of all digital components should be addressed in your review. Manuscripts without digital enhancements are still welcome. In fact, your feedback to the author may include ideas for adding digital resources to expand the reader experience.
The MTLT Editorial Board would like you to make a recommendation on the viability of the submission as a potential journal article.
You will be asked to include a detailed rationale for your recommendation, providing specific examples that may be sent to the author to support your recommendation to accept, reject, or revise (ask author for revisions). It is helpful for the reviewer to delineate the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript.
Address the areas in the manuscript that need to be improved. You may consider as many of the following as appropriate in writing your justification.
The forms below provide information to authors and help ensure that NCTM complies with all copyright laws.
