Submit articles direct to Taro Fujita (Editor): t.fujita@exeter.ac.uk


Please read the following information before submitting your paper.


The Journal is pleased to publish contributions on any aspect of the use of technology in education and training likely to be of interest to readers. The main criterion of acceptance is that the material should make a contribution to knowledge in this field. The types of contribution considered for publication in The International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education are:

  • Research reports, which should normally contain the theoretical framework and references to related literature, together with a justification and description of the methodology used and some analysis of the results of the study;
  • Ideas for Teaching and Learning, papers in this section report on classroom activities and good ideas for teaching with technology and include some evaluation of the experience of students who have used the activities;
  • Discussion papers, that raise important issues on the teaching and learning of mathematics with technology and which may be anticipated to promote a wide-ranging discussion.

Three reviewers, who will report on the quality and originality of the paper, will referee research reports. Papers submitted to the other two sections receive a lighter refereeing touch and will normally be reviewed by the Editorial Board.

Research papers

Articles describing significant research should identify clearly the significance and outcomes of the work together with the research method and how the research relates to existing work. Areas for publication of research are likely to include:

  • the influence of technology on the teaching and learning of mathematics at all levels
  • theoretical reflections on the role of technology in education
  • experiments in the use of technology in teaching and learning
  • teaching methodology using technology
  • comparisons of different forms of technology
  • Ideas for teaching and learning

The communication between users of all forms of technology in mathematics education will be encouraged and reports of significant innovations will be welcome. Readers are invited to submit articles on the following:

  • different and innovative ways in which technology can be used in teaching/learning mathematics
  • integration of technology into the teaching of mathematics
  • visualisation of mathematics concepts through the use of technology
  • discussion of the philosophy of using technological tools in mathematics education
  • reports on new learning resources and workshop materials
Problem Solving Applications

Some forms of technology provide powerful tools for solving problems in commerce, industry and research. Readers are invited to submit articles, which illustrate the use of technology in modelling, problem solving, investigations and case studies. Referees should ensure that the problem situation and underlying theory is adequately explained for the general audience.

Discussion Papers

Discussion Papers are possibly shorter, hopefully contentious, contributions providing the opportunity for debate, through the Journal, on issues relating to the use of technology in teaching and learning mathematics.
