Focus and Scope

The aim of the International Journal on Emerging Mathematics Education (IJEME), p-ISSN 2549-4995 and e-ISSN 2548-5806, is to provide an international forum for the sharing, dissemination, and discussion of research, experience, and perspectives across a wide range of education, teaching, development, instruction, educational projects and innovations, learning methodologies and new technologies in mathematics education.

The Journal invites original research articles and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The whole spectrum of research in mathematics education are welcome, which includes but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Realistic Mathematics Education (RME)

Realistic Mathematics Education (RME) is a teaching and learning theory in mathematics education that Freudenthal first introduced and developed. Two of his important points of view are mathematics must be connected to reality and mathematics as a human activity. RME is implemented following three principles, they are: (1) guided reinvention and progressive mathematizing, (2) didactical phenomenology, and (3) self-developed model. Furthermore, the practice of RME also has its own characteristics; they are: (1) phenomenological exploration or the use of contexts, (2) the use of models or bridging by vertical instruments, (3) the use of students own productions and constructions or students contribution, (4) the interactive character of the teaching process or interactivity, and (5) the intertwining of various learning strands. A paper can be included in this topic if the paper accommodates these three principles and these five characteristics.

  • Design/Development Research in Mathematics Education

Educational design research is perceived as the systematic study of designing, developing, and evaluating educational interventions (programs, teaching-learning strategies, materials, products, systems) to solve such problems. It also aims at advancing our knowledge about the characteristics of these interventions and the processes to design and develop them. Authors could submit their work, either a validation study or a development study in mathematics education, with a comprehensive description and analysis of every stage.

  • PISA Task

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is a worldwide study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in member and non-member nations intended to evaluate educational systems by measuring 15-year-old school students' scholastic performance science reading. PISA tasks here refer to the mathematics tasks developed to measure mathematical literacy. It is an individual’s capacity to identify and understand the role that mathematics plays in the world, to make well-founded judgments, and to use and engage with mathematics in ways that meet the needs of that individual’s life as a constructive, concerned, and reflective citizens. A paper is eligible for inclusion in the PISA task if it provides a comprehensive analysis of the development or the use effect of the task considering the appropriate content, context, and process.

  • Mathematics Ability

Mathematics ability refers to the ability (a human construct) to obtain, process, and retain mathematical information (cognitive) and to solve mathematics problems (pragmatic). To maintain the focus of this journal, the scope of mathematics ability includes the following abilities: reasoning, connection, communication, representation, and problem-solving. A paper is eligible for this topic if it comprehensively discusses those abilities.

  • ICT in Mathematics Education

The advance of information and communication technology (ICT) has been the concern of all human life, including education. When all students use technology, the education must be the first one to utilize it for the sake of effectiveness and attractiveness. The IJEME welcomes papers focus on the use of ICT in mathematics learning.

  • Ethnomathematics

Ethnomathematics is the study of the relationship between mathematics and culture. In a deeper understanding, ethnomathematics refers to mathematics practiced by members of a cultural group who share similar experiences and practices with the mathematics that can be in a unique form. Culture gives diverse and interesting contexts in mathematics learning to be discussed. Therefore, the scope of ethnomathematics is an important part of the focus and scope of the journal.

Peer Review Process

An editor first reviews the submitted manuscript. It will be evaluated in the office whether it is suitable for International Journal on Emerging Mathematics Education focus and scope or has a major methodological flaw and similarity score by using Plagiarism Checker X PRO.

The manuscript will be sent to at least two anonymous referees for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation (double-blind review). Reviewers' comments are then sent to the corresponding author for necessary actions and responses. The Editor shall inform you of the review results as soon as possible, hopefully in 30 to 60 days.

The suggested decision will be evaluated in an editorial board meeting. Afterward, the editor will send the final decision to the corresponding author. The journal is carried out by using Mendeley as a Tool Reference Manager. The language used in this journal is English.
