AIEM: Avances de Investigación en Educación Matemática
The electronic journal Avances de Investigación en Educación Matemática (AIEM) was first launched on May 4th as an official publication by the Spanish Society for Research in Mathematics Education (SEIEM, Sociedad Española de Investigación Matemática).
The intended audience include researchers involved in mathematics education or professionals that could use research results to improve any aspect of mathematics education or contribute to the scientific development of this area; in particular in Spain, Portugal and Latin- America. It aims to contribute to advancing knowledge on teaching, learning and understanding of mathematics at the different educational levels, through the promotion and diffusion of research. Two issues will be published each year (May and November).
As a quality research journal, the goal is that AIEM becomes a referent for research carried out in our scientific community, as well as a meeting point for other research communities that perform research in mathematics education from other geographical areas or disciplines. Consequently we invite all potential contributors to the advance of mathematics education knowledge to send us their papers.
The journal encourages the submission of quality theoretical and empirical papers (quantitative, qualitative or mixed), case studies, ethnographical work, critical reviews of research literature, and analyses of theoretical or methodological frameworks. Contributions in either Spanish or Portuguese are recommended. Contributions in French or English will also be considered. All papers received in the journal will be blind-reviewed.
We intend to collaborate with other journals and associations that share our aims, so that all together could contribute to improve the quality of mathematics education research. For this reason we would be grateful that the journal information is diffused via web-pages, email-lists and publications. We in turn will include a link to your journal/association from the AIEM web page, since diffusion is an important activity to make research results widely known.
Thanks in advance for your collaboration
