- RME has its own page on the publisher’s website and can be followed on Twitter (@RME_ResMathEd).
The Research Papers section contains reports of studies involving empirical investigation and theoretical argumentation from which conclusions and implications can be drawn for future research and practice. Such reports are expected to show how the study builds on critical review of relevant literature and to provide an account of the methods and procedures used. Reports on thoughtful replications or variations of key earlier studies are welcome, as are critical reviews of some well-defined aspect of mathematics education. The journal welcomes high-quality research in any methodological tradition and is open to innovative and unusual approaches. All submissions are peer-reviewed.
The Book Reviews section contains reviews of recent publications in the field. While reviews may focus on individual works, they may examine several recent publications on cognate topics. In this spirit too, reviewers are encouraged to make explicit reference to relevant earlier work in the field and to other contemporary work, clearly locating the new text within the literature of the field, and providing thoughtful comparison.
The Abstracts section features the abstracts of research presentations from the recent day conference of the Society – offering an insightful glimpse into the ongoing research activities of its members.
All research articles published in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymised refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.
