Focus and Scope

The Mathematics Teacher Education and Development Journal (MTED), an official journal of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Inc. (MERGA), is an international refereed journal that provides a stimulating collection of articles with a focus on mathematics teacher education.

MTED is now (from 2014) an on-line journal, with articles being published on-line first and then grouped into on-line issues and indexed above.

Submission of high quality papers in any area of mathematics teacher education and development is invited. Topics should normally be of general interest to an international readership, but papers exploring specifically Australasian issues are also welcome. Quite a diversity of articles will be included: research reports; papers addressing general issues and perspectives; “successful pathways” – reports of exemplary practices that have a strong theoretical basis or have been evaluated effectively; discussion on recent and potential policy decisions and curriculum developments; evaluations of programs, materials, particular practices, relevant research methods (e.g., teacher-as-researcher); summaries of what research says about specific mathematics education professional development themes; philosophical debates; “think" pieces where new ideas are presented; reviews of relevant books and software. The journal's purpose is to promote the sharing of ideas as well as research findings.

Peer Review Process

Double-blind (author blind, reviewer blind) Review Process

Each manuscript is handled by one of the editors. MTED uses a double-blind (author blind, reviewer blind) review process. The manuscript is reviewed blind by one of the Editorial Board members and two other referees. Working from the referees’ reports the editor, in consultation with the other editors, then decides on a publication outcome. The editor/s may require the authors of accepted papers to make specific revisions, and may suggest to authors of rejected papers general revisions that might make them publishable. All authors receive copies of the referees’ reports.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
