Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik
(now: ZDM – The International Journal on Mathematics Education)
Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik (ZDM) is one of the oldest mathematics education research journals. The papers appearing in the six themed issues per year are strictly by invitation only followed by internal peer review by selected members from the editorial board and the international editorial advisory board. The journal exists to survey, discuss and extend current research-based and theoretical perspectives as well as to create a forum for critical analyses of issues within mathematics education. The audience is pre-dominantly mathematics education researchers around the world interested in current developments in the field.
Up to 1996 ZDM was published as the first part of the print version of the database MATHDI/MathEduc.
From 2001 to 2006 ZDM was available as electronic journal (ISSN 1615-679X) only.
Since 2007 the journal is published as „ZDM – The International Journal on Mathematics Education“ by Springer.
