Aims and Scope
Journal of Math Circles (JMC) offers high-quality, practitioner-focused resources for outreach leaders through the dissemination of local knowledge to the broader mathematical community. Articles are authored by and for mathematics professionals, including K-12 teachers, who organize a wide range of community-responsive outreach programs across the globe.
JMC seeks articles capturing best practices for outreach and professional development activities that align with Math Circle core values: exploring worthwhile mathematical tasks, fostering problem-solving habits of mind, and building communities of mathematical thinkers and problem solvers. Papers offering thorough, evidence-based reflective commentary of implementation are welcome. Manuscripts may be submitted in one of three areas:
- Lesson Plans. These papers are intended to support leaders of a session or progression of sessions.
- Outreach Programs. These papers are intended to support individuals or organizations in starting or sustaining outreach programs.
- Professional Development. These papers are intended to support leaders of K-12 teacher professional development.
JMC publishes a minimum of one issue per year with special issues on themed topics. All papers are rigorously reviewed using a double-blind peer review process. The journal is open-access and uses ScholarWorks to support the peer review process and publication of articles. All published manuscripts have unrestricted access and will remain permanently free to read and download.
