The Journal for Research in Mathematics Education has the reputation of being one of the top journals worldwide that publishes mathematics education research. The task of analyzing the viability of a manuscript as a potential JRME article naturally leads to the question: What is the purpose of publishing papers in a mathematics education research journal?

We present the results of 2 studies, a citation-based study and an opinion-based study, that ranked the relative quality of 20 English-language journals that exclusively or extensively publish mathematics education research. We further disaggregate the opinion-based data to provide insights into variations in judgment of journal quality based on geographic location, journal affiliations and publishing records, and experience in the field. We also report factors that survey respondents indicated were important indicators of journal quality. Finally, we compare our results to previous related rankings and conclude by discussing how our results might inform authors, editors, and evaluators in their efforts to publish and recognize quality research in mathematics education.

In this Research Commentary, we describe 3 journal metrics–the Web of Science's Impact Factor, Scopus's SCImago Journal Rank, and Google Scholar Metrics' h5-index—and compile the rankings (if they exist) for 69 mathematics education journals. We then discuss 2 paths that the mathematics education community should consider with regard to these citation-based metrics of journal quality: either working within the system to enhance our positioning or resisting or modifying the system itself.

In Great Britain there are two associations, each publishing its own journal, that are dedicated solely to the teaching of mathematics at the secondary school level. In this issue we report on one of these associations and its publications; the other association will be reported on in a subsequent issue.
