Call for papers

Adults Learning Mathematics – International Journal is an international refereed journal that provides a forum for the online publication of high quality research on the teaching and learning, knowledge and uses of numeracy/mathematics to adults at all levels in a variety of educational sectors. Submitted papers should normally be of interest to an international readership. We invite contributions in the following areas:

  • Research and theoretical perspectives in the area of adults learning mathematics/numeracy
  • Debate on special issues in the area of adults learning mathematics/numeracy
  • Practice: critical analysis of course materials and tasks, policy developments in curriculum and assessment, or data from large-scale tests, nationally and internationally

Both full-length articles and shorter reports may be submitted. No preference is given to any particular research methodology. For further details, see:

The ALM Journal will be published twice a year.

Journal Chief Editor

Adults Learning Mathematics – an international forum has been established since 1994, with an annual conference and newsletters for members. ALM is an international research forum bringing together researchers and practitioners in adult mathematics/numeracy teaching and learning in order to promote the learning of mathematics by adults. Since 2000, ALM has been a Company Limited by Guarantee (No.3901346) and a National and Overseas Worldwide Charity under English and Welsh Law (No.1079462). Through the annual ALM conference proceedings and the work of individual members an enormous contribution has been made to making available theoretical and practical research in a field which remains under-researched and under-theorised. We now seek to establish a refereed electronic journal to further develop the high quality work in this field.
