Aims and Scope

Journal of Math Circles is an Open Access Journal, indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)

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 articles on a rolling basis with special issues on themed topics. All papers are rigorously reviewed using a double-blind peer-review process.
