The International Journal of Research in Undergraduate Mathematics Education is dedicated to post-secondary mathematics education research. It welcomes original papers – empirical, theoretical, and methodological – on the learning and teaching of mathematics at undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as research commentaries on current and important issues in the field.

  • International in scope and coverage
  • Offers comprehensive coverage of research in post-secondary instruction
  • Presents new ideas and developments of major importance in post-secondary mathematical education, including how mathematicians go about their professional practice
  • Publishes empirical, theoretical and methodological reports on learning and teaching of undergraduate and graduate students
  • No restriction on the level of mathematical content
  • Reflects both the variety of research concerns within the field and the range of methods used to study them
  • The journal emphasizes high-level articles that go beyond local interest
  • All articles go through a rigorous, double-blind peer review process

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Anti-Racist editorial practices initiative

    We are pleased to report that the IJRUME editors have been involved in an initiative, the Anti-Racist Editorial Practices working group,  that is directly preoccupied with continuing and intensifying the efforts put by key Mathematics Education journals into being as inclusive as possible of works that meet high standards of scientific quality and that come from research communities around the world.

  • Special Issue Proposal

    If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a special issue, please contact one of the Editors for more information and a proposal form.
