Technology in Mathematics Education

Call for Papers

LUMAT invites researchers, practitioners, and educators to contribute to the upcoming special issue on Technology in Mathematics Education.


Technological tools play an important role in teaching and studying mathematics. Calculators have aided straightforward computations for many decades, but nowadays curricula more and more demand the use of modern computer programs in school mathematics. However, it is not clear how and at which stage this technology should be implemented in mathematics education. Also, what is the impact of the use of technology on the learning of mathematics? Much more new research in this significant and interesting topic is needed. We welcome contributions from all aspects of the use of technology in mathematics education.

Deadlines and special issue timetable:

  • Submission deadline (full paper): February 15, 2023
  • After the deadline we will implement continuous publication model after peer review and acceptance.

We welcome both empirical as well as theoretical manuscripts in English, Finnish and Swedish.

Acceptance criteria for the manuscripts are that they:

  • Are research-based and have not been previously published.
  • Contain the following subsections:
    • Context/relevance of the study: Why the research was conducted.
    • Aim/research questions: What guided the research.
    • Theoretical framework/conceptual rationale/pragmatic grounding: How the current research is connected to the earlier studies.
    • Research methods and research design: How the research was conducted (both empirical and theoretical manuscripts are welcome).
    • Results (in theoretical manuscripts, the discussion on how the manuscript contributes to the earlier research can be combined with the discussion section and Result section might be omitted.
    • Discussion/Conclusions/Implications: How the research questions were answered, how the research results contribute to the field.
    • References in APA 7 style: Use the template on the journal website.
  • Follow the academic research guidelines for ethical and professional academic publishing, such as: publishing original work, accurate and detailed findings and methodology, including those writers as authors that have contributed to the work significantly; including all the permissions to publish previously published content from the copyright holders; adhering to (personal) data protection legislation (confidential information, identifying individuals, etc.)
  • Are clearly written - English clarity and correct grammar are expected. If necessary, the authors are asked to proofread, and copy edit the manuscripts prior to the submission.

General paper submission guidelines can be found here.
