MTED Submission Template

MTED Publication Agreement

All submissions should be in MSWord. Papers are not to exceed 9000 words (excluding references).

The review process will be double blind. Authors should submit a blind version of the manuscript. In particular, all direct and indirect references to the author(s) should be scrupulously eliminated. All cited works by one or more of the authors should be referred to as Author followed by the date of publication, and these works omitted from the reference list but included in the covering letter.

Authors' names, affiliations and addresses should be included in a covering letter. Authors should also certify in their covering letter that the manuscript has not been submitted for review by any other journal. Also include details of ethical approval granted for the study undertaken and subsequent publication of data, and a list of Author references, project names, and funding sources removed when making the submission blind.

Only papers that differ substantially from previously published work should be submitted. Manuscripts should be submitted in the MTED Open Journal System (OJS). When submitting the manuscript authors will be required to indicate the type of manuscript: research article, special issue research article or book review.

Authors and Reviewers can register themselves in the MTED OJS to submit or review manuscripts.

Special Issue Article

Articles submitted for review for a special issue must be invited by Editors of Special Issue following a successful expression of interest submission.

Illustrations of Practice

The editors of MTED would like to invite authors to contribute to an exciting new section in our journal. Illustrations of Practice will feature examples of practitioner research that describe innovative and practical examples of mathematics education researchers’ work. We are particularly interested in featuring examples of professional learning sessions undertaken with in-service teachers and accounts of classroom practice conducted with pre-service teachers. All submitted Illustrations of Practice articles are expected to be scholarly, comply with ethical approval, and make a contribution to the teaching of mathematics education. The articles will be limited to 2500 words, with the use of illustrations, work samples, and photos encouraged. It is anticipated that each regular future issue of MTED will include an Illustration of Practice, which has been fully peer-reviewed.
