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. Between September 2020 and June 2021, a group of Mathematics Education research journal editors met monthly to discuss the development of anti-racist, diverse and inclusive editorial practices in Mathematics Education. The group was convened by Jeffrey Choppin and Dan Battey, and is chaired by Dorothy Y. White. Fruits of the group’s efforts include a statement – that we have proudly signed as IJRUME editors – and a toolkit of resources available to editors for supporting their work in this area. We urge you to read the statement at https://mathematicseducationjournals.com/. Further updates concerning this initiative, and the resources, will follow soon.
