Aim of the Journal The aim is to foster awareness of philosophical aspects of mathematics education and mathematics, understood broadly to include most kinds of theoretical reflection and research in mathematics education; to freely disseminate new thinking and to encourage informal communication, dialogue and international co-operation between teachers, scholars and others engaged in such research and reflection.

Editorial policy. The editorial hand is used very lightly.  This is an international refereed journal which aims to stimulate the sharing of ideas for no reason other than an interest in these ideas and love of discussion among its contributors and readers. Please send any items for inclusion to the editor as a virus-checked attachment in MS Word or compatible formats. Many types of item are welcome including papers, short contributions, letters, discussions, provocations, reactions, or reviews. Graduate students are warmly invited to submit assignments and theses for inclusion in this journal, to make available otherwise inaccessible resources for the benefit of the research community in mathematics education and/or the philosophy of mathematics.

Format of submissions: There are no strict guidelines – authors are requested to make their submissions look like previously published papers – especially the first page headers etc.

Refereeing: All papers are submitted to peer-review on which basis the decision is made whether to accept, require revisions or reject.

Copyright Notice.  All materials published herein remain copyright of the named authors, or of the editor if unattributed. Permission is given to freely copy the journal contents on a not-for-profit basis, provided full credit is given to the author and the journal, and the integrity of papers is preserved.
