Dr. Patricio Herbst Assumes JRME Editorship

January 1, 2020

NCTM has announced that Dr. Patricio Herbst will be the next editor-in-chief of the Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (JRME).

Herbst is a professor of education and mathematics at the University of Michigan, where he has worked for almost 20 years. Herbst has been a reviewer for JRME since 1997 and was a member of the Editorial Panel between 2015 and 2018. Herbst's research seeks to describe and explain the work of mathematics teaching as a subject-specific activity and the use of representations of practice in teacher education. He uses a variety of methods including classroom teaching experiments, scenario-based questionnaires and assessments, and online discourse analysis.

“We’re delighted to have Dr. Herbst as the next editor-in-chief of JRME,” said Dr. Robert Berry, NCTM President. “Dr. Herbst’s experience and background will certainly continue to move the JRME forward while honoring the history and legacy that has been established over the past 49 years.”

JRME, an official journal of NCTM, is the premier research journal in mathematics education and is devoted to the interests of teachers and researchers at all levels-- preschool through college.

Published five times annually, JRME is a forum for disciplined inquiry into the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Focus areas include:

  • Research reports, addressing important research questions and issues in mathematics education
  • Brief reports of research
  • Research commentaries on issues pertaining to mathematics education research
  • Book reviews
