BSRLM is delighted to announce that the first issue of volume 21 of the BSRLM journal Research in Mathematics Education has been published.
This marks 21 years of the journal, a notable milestone for BSRLM.
The early editions of the journal were published as single volumes (in effect, double issues). This changed with volume 10 when a pattern of two issues per year commenced. Two years later, in 2010, the journal grew to three issues per year. This established a pattern whereby Issues 1 and 3 of each volume are ‘regular’ issues and Issue 2 is a ‘Special Issue’ with guest editors.
A feature introduced in RME Volume 18 is the occasional invited ‘position paper’ paper written by key researchers in mathematics education, accompanied by an invited ‘response paper’ by a suitable respondent. Subsequently, a ‘position paper’ and response appears in RME Volume 20. More are planned.
As well as original research papers, RME has established a strong heritage of informed and critical book reviews.
RME has also marked the sad passing of colleagues who made significant and lasting contributions to BSRLM and the wider community in mathematics education.
Since 2008, following a generous gift made to BSRLM by the family of the late Janet Duffin, a longstanding and active member of the Society, BSRLM has been able to make the Janet Duffin Award to recognise, each year, a significant paper published in RME.
This new issue of RME continues the fine RME tradition of highly-original research papers and insightful book reviews.
BSRLM celebrates 21 years of RME and looks forward to the next significant anniversary of the journal!
